Montefalco Castle (PG)

Its origins are obscure and uncertain, but its antiquity is testified by the considerable amount of Roman and early medieval archaeological finds found. It probably rises where there was a pago, whose territory, with the Roman order, was divided between the municipalities of Spoleto and Bevagna. The fourteenth-century crenellated tower, from which you enter the real historic center, shows from the external side of the walls the three loopholes used by crossbowmen, the Ghibelline battlements of the Romanesque era and the throwing gallery where the guards were stationed. Below the gallery, after 1543, the first Montefalco clock was inserted, which is still in operation today. The heavy oak doors that protected the entrance were removed only after 1930. Inside the door, under the vault, the very worn remains of a 15th century fresco depicting the Madonna and Child among Saints are visible.
