Fortanete noble houses

Fortanete is dotted with mansions of good stone, but among them all stand out two, the palace of the Medinacelli and the Casa Tonda.

Palace of the Dukes of Medinacelli

Corner building on an irregular plot, with three floors and high wooden eaves. It preserves a doorway with a semicircular arch of ashlar masonry and a Renaissance style balcony between two attached pilasters, entablature and split pediment. Above the door is a shield.

Inside there is a staircase with a large span, on the ceiling of which appears the coat of arms of the Dukes of Medinacelli, dated 1578.

Tonda House

The Tonda House, although not in good condition, stands out for its volume, for some details of the facade, the eaves. In its interior it conserves details of interest, such as the remains of a chapel and a coffered ceiling.
