Fonti del Clitunno

Overview

The Fonti del Clitunno are a poetic nature park in the municipality of Campello sul Clitunno.

Dedicated to the cult of Jupiter Clitunno, and therefore considered sacred, these springs were once so abundant as to form a large navigable river that connected these territories with Rome.

Although during the 5th century AD a serious earthquake destroyed part of the Fountains, the water supply always remains considerable.

In the second half of the 19th century, the Park took on its current appearance thanks to the work of Count Paolo Campello della Spina, who reorganised the spaces and created the magical lake.

An atmosphere of fabulous harmony forms the backdrop to this unique and evocative place.

The incredible natural beauty of the Fonti del Clitunno has always inspired poets and intellectuals: from Pliny the Younger to Corot, from Byron to Giosuè Carducci.

Flowers, fish, swans and ducks animate the lively atmosphere of the park among weeping willows and cypress poplars in a fabulous harmony.

A place to stop and admire, in religious silence, the beauty of an enchanted place where the human hand has been able to caress, care for and protect the wonderful works of nature.
