Castle Monticelli consists of a group of historic buildings and has four military towers that dominate harmoniously a medieval village of rare beauty. The construction of at least some of its buildings could date back to the 6th century. It is part of a territory called Contado di Porta Eburnia, located in the valleys immediately south-west of Perugia, between the basins of the rivers Caina, Genna and Nestore and enclosed in an area of about 120 square kilometers. You can enjoy a well-preserved landscape dotted with medieval villages, castles, towers and historic villas. A vast countryside with mansions that were residences and homes for relaxation and hunting of Popes, Kings and knights.
A careful restoration over the years, in addition to its peculiarities, has meant that Castle Monticelli today has been declared National Heritage.
Today, it is a comfortable and luxurious venue, perfect for organizing your most important day and every type of event.
Nearly 10,000 square meters of gardens and lawns surround the castle, of which about 1,600 are “private gardens” of the apartments on the ground floor. The rest is available for guests.
Castello Monticelli, thanks to its history and the surrounding nature, is an ideal location for an unforgettable wedding, a very special Engagement Shot. You can enjoy a magical atmosphere of the past and a wonderful view of several medieval villages on the nearby hills.
There are several options available for you to organize your event.

At a distance of around 20 meters, there is the small chapel of St. Paul built by the Benedictines before 1115 A.D. with delicate frescoes of the years 1315-19 painted by the artist Meo from Siena.
In the nearby, there are also two charming medieval churches, one in Castiglione della Valle at a distance of 600 meters and one in Pieve Caina at a distance of 1.5 km, so this location offers various possibilities to celebrate the religious ceremony.
