CASTLE Speltara
On the road S.Terenziano-Collazzone stands this ancient manor abandoned in a square with unique and high corner tower, surrounded by strong walls. The earliest records date back to the thirteenth century. Speltara when it was under the jurisdiction of San Terenziano. His name was derived from the cultivation of spelled wheat plant of the family Gramineae, similar to the grain and then called spelled. Speltara followed the historical events of Ford Cattaneo and the neighboring areas, becoming alternately feud Perugia, outpost Arm Fortebracci and possession of Todi. The castle, tall and massive, contains a large courtyard where you open the court, the houses reserved for the servants and the stable. The whole complex, which is accessed through a single port, is in a very bad state of preservation and deserves a significant restoration to the grandeur of the architecture.
