Ancaiano Castle - Spoleto (PG)


Few people know it, but the Municipality of Spoleto is part of the Valnerina, three of its hamlets, Le Cese, Belvedere and Ancaiano, overlook the splendid Nera valley, in an environment of incomparable beauty.
Of the three, now almost depopulated, hamlets, the richest in history is Ancaiano, ancestral castle of the noble Ancaiani family, built to defend the south side of the ancient duchy and dominated by a mighty tower with massive architecture, with a complex decoration with white stone barbicans. Also at the end, on the lookout terrace, a small room characterizes the whole building.
From the tower the walls descend to the inhabited area, characterized by the high square keep, with the typical triangular structure of the sloping castle.
The fortress was built, probably in the 11th century by the Ancaiani nobles, lords of the castle and the surrounding lands as well as the nearby abbey of San Pietro in Valle, of which they were always commendatory abbots.
It stands, dominating the valley on an impervious rocky spur. to know more
