Papiano

Overview

At the centre of a vast flat area crossed by the Tiber and its tributary Nestore, lies Marsciano, a centre of great beauty and history. But it is in one of its hamlets, Papiano, that the medieval past has kept its memories alive, in the architecture, in the details, in the atmosphere. Papiano, immersed in the countryside, seems like an island of ancient history: its castle, built in 1277, still retains three of the five original watchtowers in excellent condition. One of the towers in 1823 was used as the Torre Campanaria and is still one of the most important bell towers in the region: built at the highest point of the village, it has a large clock dating back to the 13th century and two bells. The ancient atmosphere, however, is everywhere. To feel it, all you have to do is walk through the alleys, observing the arches and frescoes and losing yourself in admiring glimpses that recall a time that no longer exists: a time of ladies, knights, duels and magic.
