Historical complex located in Mora, a small medieval town in one of the closest hill of Assisi, consisting of a medieval tower and two buildings (one of them is a ruin). There is a private land of about 10700 sqm. In the garden there are visible old walls that testify the existence of further volumes. The property is not isolated but convenient with all services in just 2 km drive.
MORA history notes
The first documents bearing the name of Mora dated back to XII century, in 1232. The origins of the castle of Mora are unknown, until that around 1400 Don Domenico Nicolucci (Vicar of Mora) with the inhabitants of the countryside, wished to erect two towers and in the main one appears to have been made a fresco (now deteriored) depicting the Patron Saint Christopher.
In 1756 the surveyor Fontana, after an inspection, describes the castle with a square plan, with four towers at the corners. From the north tower stood, and still you can see, the only door of the Castle. Somewhat preserved, the southwest tower dominates the valley towards Sterpeto. On the walls are still visible the loopholes.
The current internal area of the castle is occupied by some homes and garden plots, while in the southern part there are some parish buildings of the church dedicated to St Christopher.
Today the parish buildings are completely restored and thanks to the beauty of the place and its important history, they host a cloistered convent.
The medieval ruins of the towers and the castle of Mora, laid on the beautiful hill of Assisi's medieval castles along the valley of the river Chiascio, are a unique example of Umbrian medieval age still visible and preserved.
