The Tempietto del Clitunno.

Campello sul Clitunno is an agricultural comune about 8 km south of Trevi and 18 km south of Foligno along the Via Flaminia (more or less) and 11 km north of Spoleto.

Other than the striking ruined 11c‑12c walled town of Pissignano, there are few medieval monuments. On the other hand, Campello is world-famous for what is probably one of the oldest Christian churches in Europe, certainly a very beautiful one, too; and, just 2 km away, the Fonti del Clitunno — Fons Clitumni in Latin, as praised in the works of several ancient authors — which remains today one of the great beauty spots of central Italy.

A proper website will eventually appear here, since I've been to these places and walked the area a few times. In the meanwhile, you may find it useful to read these entries of my diary, which include some more (and better) photos: Oct. 22, 1997 • Sept. 11 and 12, 1998 • May 9, 2004.


Campello is one of the Umbrian comuni that has no true population center: there is no actual town named Campello, and the administrative territory is an amalgam of very small villages spread over hills and farmland. More than the other comuni centered on some larger town, then, Campello's territory is defined by these hamlets: as elsewhere in Italy, these are referred to as the frazioni of the comune (singular: frazione, literally a "fraction"): a complete list of them follows; the Municipio, or offices of the comune, are in Bianca.

I've been to Pissignano, so the link to it below will be to my diary, which includes a photo, and one or more further links: as usual on my site, don't forget to check the navigation bar at the bottom of this page. I have not been to the others, so any links for them will be offsite.
