This paper presents the restoration, functional upgrading and plant design carried out at the San Martino Castle, located in Parella. The castle was built in the XIII Century and had undergone extensions and transformations up until the XX Century. It has been recently refurbished with the introduction of new functions. The criteria that drove the plant design were: to give new life to the environment, to achieve adequate comfort levels and air quality; to respect the existing structures, minimizing or integrating terminals and distribution systems; and to install energy efficiency systems, as well as to minimize emissions and running costs.
