Immersed in the heart of green Umbria, Campello sul Clitunno offers a magnificent landscape, enriched by a priceless cultural heritage.
It consists of two nuclei: Campello Alto (Castle) and Campello Basso (La Bianca).
The Castle of Campello Alto, built in the 10th-11th centuries by the Baron of Bourgogne Rovero di Champeaux, still has its walls – intact at that. Destroyed by a fire in the 14th century, it was enlarged in the same century, and that is what we see today. The water wells and the community ovens, the church of San Donato and the scent of antiquity all contribute to create a magical atmosphere. The arches, windows and turrets of the old dwellings, al perfectly preserved, maintain the characteristic and original typical aspect of a fortified hamlet. Visiting the Castle at night is a fantastic experience.
Uphill, along the ancient Via Flaminia, visitors can see the Source of the Clitumnus and the Temple of Clitumnus, a UNESCO Heritage Site since 2011.
The Source of the Clitumnus are the main attraction: a green oasis of peace and relaxation where visitors can walk and enjoy the sounds and colours of nature.
The Temple of Clitumnus is a little church of still unknown origins, perhaps dedicated to San Salvatore and dating back to the Lombard era. The temple contains the history and the mystery of the place.
