Castle of Eggi - Spoleto (PG)

The castle of Eggi is located two kilometers from Flaminia, 5 from Spoleto in the direction of Foligno, almost between the Valle del Nera and the Spoletana, surrounded by olive groves, which give way to the Mediterranean scrubland towards the top of the hills. The origin of the name is unknown, perhaps it can be connected to some family of the Roman Eggi from Aegius. Traces of this period are currently known. There are reports of some epigraphs, villas and inhabited settlements. One of these tombstones, found in the base of the main altar, is visible in San Giovanni Battista, where other Roman elements are used in the construction of the building.
