Vallo di Nera

Beautiful castle overlooking the Valnerina, between its narrow streets is still surrounded by the magic of the Middle Ages.

The urban layout is compact, with the typical structure of the castle hill: the original nucleus built around the square of San Giovanni Battista, the highest point of the hill, lie flat and steep climbs ring roads. The first fortified settlement were later joined the fifteenth-century village of Santa Maria, which forms the second city wall, built to include the monastic settlements, and the later sixteenth of Casali village, built in the period of maximum population growth, along the roads of access to the Castle.
