|Rocca di Ravaldino|
Residence of the Lord of Forlì and stronghold of the city.
The Rocca di Ravaldino, also known as the Castle of Ravaldino, is a castle located inside Forlì.
Built with a square plan and imposing corner towers, the Rocca di Ravaldino was constructed in 1471 by the architect Giorgio Marchesi Fiorentino, at the request of Pino III Ordelaffi, the lord of Forlì. Later on, it was enlarged into a citadel by Girolamo Riario, the new lord after Pino's son Sinibaldo.
The entrance to the tomb of Qulan Gal could be found here, on a low wall beside the moat. The castle also served as Caterina Sforza's stronghold during both the Battle of Forlì. Ezio Auditore da Firenze placed an Apple of Eden into her care while he went to rescue her children, though Checco Orsi breached the castle and stole the Apple during Ezio's absence.
