Nozzano Castello is a small charming village perched on a huge isolated rock with almost vertical faces at a bight of the river Serchio. It is in the Plain of Lucca
, not far from the imposing renaissance walls of the town.
From here we have a magnificent panorama of the cultivated countryside and its surrounding hills; we can also clearly discern other fortified places: Torre dell' Aquila, the castle
of Castiglione, that of Ripafratta and the sites of Cotone and Castel Passerino. The rocca
of Nozzano Castello has been recently well restored and now crowns this pleasant village and its many medieval corners with its bold and warlike presence.
