Pupaggi

The ancient village of Pupaggi was shaped in the eleventh century around St. Sebastian's church. It is a typical villa on the homonymous plateau, composed of a large internal square, faced both by the church and our agritourism complex dominated by a dove-cote tower. The tower has the particularity of being provided at the corners with overturned earthenware pots with the aim to prevent any possibility of predators scaling up to the dove-cote.

The Places Around

The Pupaggi's plateau lies on the eastern side of the Via della Spina and is configured as a watershed between Menotre and Umbria's valley's territory and the south-eastern part of Valnerina, even if it belongs to the latter as far as morphology and history is concerned.

The “Via della Spina” was a connection over the Appennins of primary importance both as a transhumance and as a commercial and human communication road before the construction of Via Flaminia in the II century A.C. Moreover it witnessed the passing of Hannibal’s troops during the II^ Punic War.
