The Norman Tower, 34 meters high and located in the Castello courtyard at the entrance to the ancient village, dominates the Rutigliano landscape from the 11th century. This is what remains of an ancient castle of Byzantine-Norman origin, destroyed in 1618. The tower, with a quadrangular base with walls about two meters thick and narrow loopholes, has several floors superimposed up to a terrace at the top and conserves, inside, 15th century frescoes.
Palazzo Antonelli is a valuable historic mansion dating back to the sixteenth century that has always belonged to the same family for more than five centuries: the Counts Antonelli. In the palace, an example of Renaissance architecture, you can admire the masonry of the entrance door, the terracotta floor, the kitchens, the wooden altar at the entrance of the main floor, the walls painted with lime and the vaults of beams, the wooden fixtures and the painted doors, just as they were in the seventeenth century.
