A show of might is built of bleached yellow stone atop a steep hillside very high above the city. Some view enthusiasts claim that a sharp-eyed observer can see all the way to the Mediterranean on a clear day, but that’s probably an oxygen-deprivation vision induced by the hearty climb through narrow medieval lanes and up the pine-scented hillside. Hyberbole aside, views across the Umbrian plain below are wonderful and quite a bit more exhilarating than the dull displays of costumes and weapons in the restored keep and soldiers quarters; save the admission fee for a glass of wine when you get back down.
Piazzale delle Libertà Comunali, at the top of town, at the ends of Via della Rocca, Via del Colle, and the stepped Vicolo San Lorenzo off Via Porta Perlici
