Castle of Montefalco (PG)
Its origins are obscure and uncertain, but its antiquity is testified by the considerable amount of archaeological finds discovered, Roman and early medieval. It probably stands where it was a pago, whose territory, with the Roman order, remained divided between the municipalities of Spoleto and Bevagna. During the Roman period the hill was populated with patrician villas, of which the memory remains in place names: Assegnano, Camiano, Colverano, Rignano, Satriano, Vecciano and numerous epigraphs and sculptures, preserved in the Municipal Museum or enclosed in the Cloister of San Fortunato .
