CASTIGLIONE DEL LAGO

It rises on a limestone cape (once the fourth islands of the lake) on the western side of Lago Trasimeno, the greater one of central Italy.

For its strategic position, between Arezzo, Orvieto and Perugia, was object of fights since its foundation, made by Etruscans. The city takes the name from the symbol of the lion in the coat of arms of the family that dominated in the past (Castellum Leonis).
Castiglione del Lago conserves the town planning received the low Middle Ages by Federico II di Svevia. The town-walls and the Rocca del Leone, that dominates the lake, are perfectly conserved.

It deserves a visit also the Palazzo Comunale and the Palazzo della Corgna (XVI cent.), that keeps rooms frescoed with mitologiche scenes by Giovanni Antonio Pandolfi and Salvio Salvini.
