Among the castles of Sardinia
, the Castle of Sassari
had a very troubled history, and has passed several times with difficulty. Built in the XIV Century, it was used by the population of Sassari to resist the Crown of Aragon
. Later, from 1535, it was used by the Inquisition and was converted into a barracks for the Royal Italian Army
until 1877. The demolition of this castle began in that year, to make space for squares and for the barracks of Lamarmora
, headquarters of the Brigata di Sassari (“Sassari brigade”).
