Lago Trasimeno

Situated on a small hill that rolls into the lake, the castle-town is still surrounded by its unaltered medieval walls. Originally a fishermen’s town later an agricultural centre, Castilgione del Lago is today the most important tourist attraction of the Trasimeno area.

The Fortress, an independent structure is one of most interesting examples of medieval military architecture and that during the 1500’s was considered the hardest to defeat. It was built in 1247 based on the project made by Frair Elia Coppi from Cortona. It has an irregular pentagonal base with 4 towers and 3 entrances dominated by the main overlook (30 m tall).  The walk way offers a beautiful view of the lake while the inside is used as a natural amphitheatre for shows.
