Fortress of Col
The Fortress of Col, seat of House DeBiasio, is a big stronghold largely underground, which occupies most of the north slope of Mount Colat. The fortress was also used during the First World War as an underground battery, and during the Second World War as a refuge for civilians during aerial bombing. Although it is now the seat of the House DeBiasio, the members of the family reside in Vignetia. The Fortress hosts the jurisdiction administrative offices.
