Place of Interest
Hiking fun in the farthest southeast of the province
Situated in the farthest southeast of the province, Casteldelci’s natural beauty is ideal for outside activities. The pristine nature and, in particular, the wavy Apennines landscape make hiking and walks through its biota a very special, unique experience. Surely, the various paths and alleys lend themselves to be explored riding a horse or a mountain bike. The vicinity to the Mount della Zucca and the Mount Fumaiolo, from which the rivers Marecchia and Tiber spring, makes seeing this landscape for yourself compulsory.
Casteldelci: fortification near the holm-oaks
Casteldelci was first mentioned in the documents in the 12th century as “Casale d’ilice”, literally translated "fortification near the holm-oaks". Ancient historical discoveries, for example Roman settlements, suggest a substantially longer history of this village. Said discoveries can be viewed in the archaeological museum Casa Museo Sandro Colarieti. Worth a visit as well is the old bell tower that dates from 1100 and was later integrated into the nearby St. Martin church, plus the medieval village of Campo with sandstone houses and the nowadays hardly populated Borgo di Poggio Calanco with its stone houses, which offers a breathtaking view of the whole region.
