Morcicchia Castle - Giano dell’Umbria (PG)

It rises nestled on the Martani Mountains in an almost inaccessible position; it is named in the annals of Muratori "Castrum quod dicitur Moricicla situm in ducatum Spoletano inter Muricem et Clarignanum in Plebe de Luzano Beati Petri est". Of the ancient castle, divided into two districts: San Silvestro and Castello, only a few surviving towers remain, some houses, the remains of the Porta Vecchia to the east and the Porta di Ressando to the west, and a large part of the walls.
Inside the castle walls stands the Church of San Silvestro, completely renovated a few years ago, which is documented by the Pelosius Code as early as the 14th century, even if, in all likelihood, it is much older, as some features would suggest. of the perimeter walls that lean against the castle walls.
The interior no longer retains anything relevant.
A tall bell gable built in the fourteenth century rises in the shadow of a massive rectangular tower. To know more:
