Description
Information regarding the Gova castle is quite scarce. It rose on a knoll to the west of the hamlet. Only a massive squared tower remains of the fort, it's made of stone following the "opus quadratum" technique, with raised portal surmounted by an ashlar bearing a coat of arms, now illegible. Even though the first information regarding the castle, listed among the processions of the Dalli family, dates back to the XV century, foundation of the complex is certainly to be placed in a previous period.
