Castro ruins

Castro was the capital city of the ancient duchy that took its name.
It was destroyed in 1649 by the pontifical militias, in the area we find finds dating back to prehistoric times. In Etruscan times these places were densely populated considering the remarkable importance of the necropolises surrounding the area, so that for some scholars the area corresponds to the ancient. The rock that surrounds this itinerary and the Tuff originateded by the explosive eruptions of the volcanoes, which are now a part of Castro.
Visit to the ruins of Castro
The ancient capital is surrounded by lush vegetation that jealously guards the events related to its fall. Walking through the dense vegetation of the forest we will stumble upon finely carved capitals, elegant road pavements, traces of frescoes emerging between the leaves, in a suggestive and revealing path.
