CCastle of Ferentillo (TR)

The territory where is located Ferentillo is inhabited for a long time, the Roman presence in the place is testified not only by the predial Nicciano, Ampognano, Leazzano also by the discovery of a votive cippus with inscriptions near the abbey of San Pietro in Valle and preserved therein, dating back to the Republican period.
The origins of Ferentillo date back to the eighth century and for many centuries its history is linked to that of the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle. The first settlements are in fact represented by the fortresses of Precetto, founded by Liutprando in 740, and Matterella, a little later, with the neighboring castles of Monterivoso and Umbriano, to defend the abbey of San Pietro in Valle. Under the castles with time, the village of Ferentillo developed around the ancient parish church of Santa Maria.
