Walking at Castellaraccio

Yesterday I went to have a look at the ruins of the castle, and instead of walking around the top I walked outside below what were once the rampants (no easy feat as it is quite steep and a forest!). What I noticed, which I hadn’t properly before, were two things: first, that more of the walls are preserved than one imagines, and are higher than one can see from the inside, but covered in earth and vegetation. Secondly, there is an area on the east side of the castle with a high concentration of roof tiles and bricks: either from a collapse or possibly were dumped there
