Umbria around San Giovanni al Monte

Our village, Collazzone, is a medieval castle located at the centre of Umbria, surrounded by hills full of wood of oak and pine trees , filelds and olive groves.

 

Two great religious who have followed the Franciscan rule and have spent part of their lives in Collazzone are Saint Simone (1208-Collazzone Spoleto 1250) nobleman who abandoned the riches to preach in France and Germany, and Jacopone who died in Collazzone Christmas on Eve of 1306.

 

The village still preserves all the features of the medieval village with its narrow streets , and the imposing towers from which you can admire the beautiful valley below. The Collazzone hilly area offers the opportunity to go hinking that highlight environmental and scenic wealth.
