About Castiglione del Lago

Symbol of Castiglione del LagoCastiglione del Lago is a town in the province of Perugia. Founded by the Romans with the name Novum Clusium (New Chiusi), is located on a hill that was once the fourth island of the Trasimeno lake (the other three islands are called Major, Minor and Polvese ), before the strip of water separating the island from the mainland was filled. The current name comes from the symbol of the family that once dominated the area. In fact, the word Castiglione comes from Castellum Leonis (Lion Castle), then popularized in Castellioni. The modern city has grown far away from the medieval old town, which is though still perfectly preserved.
