Castello Antognolla

Strada Antognolla-Ascagnano, Perugia

The period of construction of the Castle is not known: the first records date back to 1174, year in which it is attested the presence of a Benedectine Monastery, whose only remaining witness is the crypt of the Saint'Agata's Church. The monastic settlement assumed a strictly military in the mid-thirteenth century, mentioned as a castrum owned by the Antognolla family. In 1628 it became the property of Cornelio Oddi; in 1836 it passed to the Marquis Giovanni Battista Guglielmi, which provides a number of restorations. Today the Ccastle and the estate are affected by a major tourist attention.
