The terrace on the Trasimeno lake
Amid a village and a castle, a shell-shaped little town
Anciently a medieval castle, Panicale is still surrounded by its original 12th century defensive walls, and is set in a dominating position above Lake Trasimeno.
Within the walls the town is structured in a circular shape, that peaks at the highest point of the city from which it is possible to enjoy a breathless view of the Lake and the surrounding hills.
Just outside the city walls, Panicale keeps a treasure in a small oratory, the famous fresco made by Perugino, depicting the Martyr of St. Sebastian.
