History Museum Museum
Standing tall atop St. Elias hill, towering dates back to 1359 and was built by Pope Innocent VI as part of a set of fortresses meant to reestablish papal authority in central Italy. The rectangular castle is topped by six stately towers and consists of two courtyards connected by a frescoed archway. These artworks show the six cities that at the time belonged to the church. You'll also see the Hall of Honor, meant for ceremonies and banquets, and the Camera Pinta, where you'll find two 14th-century fresco cycles. The fortress also offers spectacular views of the city and countryside beyond.

  • Fort from 13th century, with some old paintings. Little to see for children, no English explanation. Spectacular views over Spoleto. There is an escalator to the top.

  • Easily accessible thanks to the mechanized path inside also has a museum full of artifacts, from the outside you can enjoy a splendid view of Spoleto, we recommend the purchase of SPOLETO CARD which allows you to visit different museums at a cost only.

  • Bella la Rocca view by day and by night, hopped with path mechanized and once we turn all clean and well maintained newly built seems majestic Sin you can visit up to 19:30, it would have been even more distinctive can see up close with the illuminations lit. Inside then the Museum lives on a piece of history, visit highly recommended.
