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 can find things dating back to prehistoric times. In Etruscan times these places were densely populated considering the remarkable importance of the necropolises surrounding the area. The rock that surrounds this itinerary and the Tuff originateded by the explosive eruptions of the volcanoes are now a part of Castro.
Visit to the ruins of Castro
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.
