Poppi

Poppi

This imposing tenth-century castle looms over the medieval town of Poppi. It has perfectly preserved dungeons, and a unique library housing 25,000 antique volumes and medieval manuscripts. A visit here is best combined with a trip to the Hermitage of Camaldoli, with its fifteenth-century pharmacy and the vertiginous Sanctuary of St. Francis on Monte Verna.
