History

We do not know anything about the history of the castle. It was probably Frankish, built, perhaps in the 13th or the 14th century.

It is included in the Frankish list of castles of 1450 (Trechale), 1467 (Tricalia) and 1469 (Teichala). It is also in the Venetian list of the Grimani census of 1700 as Tricalla.


Structure, Fortification & Buildings

The castle is on a plateau under a big rock. Its area is 1200m2. Foundations of the walls (at the northern and southern sides) are partly visible, as well as the remains of a tower.
