Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Perugia - Umbriacastle
Sant Apollinare is a charming battlemented fortress wonderful panorama
Saint Apollinare is a charming battlemented fortress enclosing two courtyards. Built in the 11th Century, it used to be part of a ring of castles protecting the southern side of the medieval town of Perugia.
In the 13th century the Abbot controlling the Castle is forced to yield it up in return for protection to the noble Graziani family. The Grazianis lived there for over 400 years.
The Castle has always been inhabited, therefore beautifully keeping today its original structure.
The wonderful panorama of the hilly countryside reminds of the fine works of the Umbria's master painters of the 14th century. Remarkably, a fresco by Pietro Vannucci (widely known as 'Il Perugino') can be admired in the church of the nearby town of Cerqueto.
