Dates back to the agreement made in 1124 with the bishop Altemanno when the citizens of Riva were granted the right to build a new fortress on the lake shore. The course of history has left its mark on la Rocca which has been altered over th time. In the early 16 century, it was refurbished to make it a fitting temporary residence of the bishop princes. It underwent a radical th transformation in the mid-19 century, when it was turned into an Austro-Hungarian barracks and lost all its medieval and renaissance features. Recent restoration work has revealed some of the original structures and made it a suitable home for the museum. The view from the keep is truly magnificent.
