Secret escape routes

Every fortress features secret escape routes.

An ancient legend has it that the Malatesta family created an underground passage that would allow them to leave the castle in case of an attack. It is said that Sigismondo Malatesta would ride on horseback down the long underground maze and in just a few minutes manage to get to the Pieve, which is about a km away.

No one has ever managed to unravel this mystery.
