Trekking

Hiking long walk or just stroll around the Castle of Santa Cristina goes beyond all expectations. The lovely nature but still wild you can discover a dimension often forgotten today and also the scene with medieval castles towering over the surrounding hills will lead you to the historical reality of a region culturally to discover.

The neighbors volcanic lakes are those of Bolsena and Mezzano, with a particularly interesting from the naturalistic environment, as the Reserve of Lamone west and the reserve of Mount Rufeno the same distance to the east.

Wherever Lake Bolsena, reveals traces of Etruscan and Roman history. There are also wildlife sanctuaries, which were discovered, along with other important findings, such as the Via Francigena, with its signs of memorable events of the past and its Etruscan necropolis.

The cemetery nearest the castle is to Pianezze, just outside the village of Grotte di Castro, known in Etruscan with the name of Tyre.

This and many other pieces of history, can be seen trying the great food and local wine and walking along ancient paths untouched and still used by farmers and shepherds to reach their fields.

Castro

Castro was the capital city of the ancient Duchy that took his name. It was destroyed in 1649 by the papal militia, the area we find artifacts dating back to prehistoric times. In Etruscan times these places were densely populated considering the great importance of the cemeteries that surround the area, so that for some scholars the area corresponds to the ancient Statonia. The rock that surrounds this route and the Tuff originated from explosive eruptions of volcanoes, now Spanti surrounding Castro. The ancient capital is surrounded by lush vegetation which jealously guards the events related to his fall
