Medieval castle hill was built in the ninth century to defend the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle Saracen invasions, preserves the gateway, built with boxes and wedges of white stone and still stands perfectly the triple circle of walls)
The center is still compact, with limited tampering, or substitution.
Almost completely restored boasts an interesting heritage as the church of San Biagio the fifteenth century. built on the ruins of the ancient fortress of the country (in fact you can see the louvers on the exterior of a time defensive bastion).
The same bell tower was obtained on the former watchtower. The original church is located about 600 m. the country as a whole of the Convent of St. John of high medieval era, now completely abandoned. All 'inside of the church of San Biagio of great artistic value is the altarpiece painted by Jacopo Siculo depicting the Coronation of the Virgin with Saints (San Mamiliano, Mary Magdalene and Saint John) and a wooden statue of St. John (from by 'former convent). All 'inside the city walls you can admire the Well column surmounted by a carved dated 1005 with the first coat of Ferentillo and the severed head of a Saracen.

Ciao Silvio ,

This stone archway must have hundreds, even thousands of the years, just like any hill town in Umbria. The picture was very nice composed. Thanks for sharing.

Buona sera Silvio,
Nice the effect through the double archs alley, towards the old-well and the old facade.
Ancient built but well preserved. The story is interesting and sged light on the place's history.

another wonderful composition with great framing and perfect management of exposure. The arched gateway makes a lovely frame and the contrast in the foreground provided by the grass is very pleasing. The pillar at the centre makes a great focal point.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

You had a good idea to use the arch to frame the fountain. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the fountain. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

A gate one thousand years old, very nice idea to use it as a frame, very well done with good sharpness and details

J'aime beaucoup la perspective sur le superbe puits au centre de la petite cour. J'aime que le regard passe sous la petite arche, ce qui donne de la profondeur à l'ensemble.

Hello Silvio - We sss a lovely local feature through the archway; water and wells and fountains seem to be a fixture in many Italian squares and I wonder if their importance reaches back in time to he Roman era?
An attractive scene and a very nicely managed shot. The soft colour palette and light is super.

Ciao Silvio, molto buona fotografia di questa bella e interessante composizione con la vista attraverso gli archi, splendidamente catturate in questa immagine interessante con una buona nitidezza, profondità, luce, colore e qualità. Molto buono ed interessante lavoro ben fatto, complimenti amico mio. Grazie per la condivisione di questo bel lavoro.
Buona notte e felice settimana.
Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.

Hi Silvio, Another great picture defined by the design of arches. This place looks very old but your POV makes it look lovely to view. The fountain is probably not working but the lively grass in the FG brings its life back. Great details along with nice light. Thank for sharing
