Photographer's Note

San Mamiliano
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.
