Castle of Vasciano - Stroncone (TR)

History

Ancient castle, subject first to Narni then to Stroncone, still maintains its medieval appearance. Wedged in the valley of the river Aja, which originates from the mountains of Configni, Vasciano presents a territory jagged from precipices and cliffs with hills planted with vines and olive groves. It is surrounded by magnificent woods with beeches, hornbeams, hedgehogs and oaks, which rise above one thousand meters. A small coat of arms carved in the frieze of a window mentions the dominion of the Savelli princes.

From a bull of Honorius III, on March 17, 1225, when Narni and the places of the diocese itself were struck with disquiet, it appears that Vasciano was among the assets taken under the protection of St. Peter of Rome, being burdened by the municipality of collections and huge duties. Subsequently, from a bull of Pope Gregory IX of 1 June 1227 and from the Statutes of Narni it is learned that the Castle of Vasciano had to pay Narni a 2-pound candle for the feast of St. Juvenal.
