Vasanello

Vasanello

Vasanello is so small that if it had not been for the impressive landmark of Castello Orsini in the heart of the village, visitors would have driven right through the main Piazza della Repubblica without noticing the existence of a center. The castle constructed on a previous Falsico-Roman rampart (about XIII A.D.) with four cylinder towers. The important Baronial Castle presents on the façade a beautiful coat of arms of Della Rovere.

Impressive is also the bell tower of S. Salvatore adjacent to the famous Romanesque church (c. X A.D.). There is a tale saying  that Elio, last of the Etruscan kings, defeated by the Romans just a few km. away from Vasanello, was buried underneath the belltower.
