Sterpeto Castle - Assisi
Sterpeto Castle rises north-east of Palazzo, on one of the hills around Assisi that descend to the Chiascio river. Located on the border between the ancient municipal areas of Assisi and Perugia, on the top of a hill dominated the medieval valley, then marshy and unhealthy.
Its construction dates back to around the 11th century.
The Castle of Sterpeto is named for the first time in an act of the year 1056 with which a certain Maria, daughter of Giovanni, with the consent of Pepo, donates to the church of San Rufino di Assisi their land with houses, meadows, vineyards , olive groves, figs and a part of the Sterpeto Castle itself.
The origin of the toponym reveals the presence of "brushwood" but the place must certainly have been laughing and safe.
