Set on a promontory overlooking the Lake Trasimeno,
Castiglione del Lago still keeps its original 13th century
medieval structure with its well preserved city walls and
fortress built by the German emperor Frederick II.
Its main attraction is the famous Della Corgna Palace, a
16th century building planned by Gian Galeazzo Alessi and
frescoed by Niccolò Circignani (known as “il Pomarancio”),
which is linked to the medieval Fortress (known as the Lion
Fortress) by a corridor…From the fortress, you will enjoy
one of the most astonishing views of Lake Trasimeno!
