Forum Boarium, Rome: 33 reviews and 71 photos
In the 11th century, the prominent Crescenzi family built this fortress to watch over the docks on the Tiber River. They utilised random fragments from ruined Roman buildings in the construction of the fortress. Over time, the fortress was reduced to what we see today as the bizarre Casa dei Crescenzi, which looks like a patchwork of ancient and mediaeval ruins.
