The inner fortress “Outs Kale”

The inner acropolis “Outs Kale”, located on the southwest side of the Castle, to the left of the main gate, the last stand of the defenders in case of siege. Within the acropolis, there are three buildings. A large one on the north side, a small one opposite the gate, and a small basement on the east side. There is also a coat of arms engraved on a nearby well and the prevailing hypothesis to this day is that it belonged to the Orsini family. However, this hypothesis has recently changed due to a new historical analysis of the coat of arms and is now attributed to the Tokkos family.
