Visit of Spello
The limestone village
Spello lies on the extreme southern foothills of Mount Subasio and is built with rosee limestone of the same mountain. The Romans called it “Hispellum”; it seems that the name derives from its legendary founder, Ispeo Pelisio, one of the companions of Aeneas, lost during the trip.
Visit Spello is as valuable a book composed of many pages to be read slowly desiring the beauty. Starting from the south (the area of "Village") to climb to the Porta dell'Arce (the "Belvedere"), you can visually cover the history of a place where you can breathe in the ancient Umbrian, Roman, medieval and Renaissance atmosphere.
