MONTE ROMANO - MONUMENTS & Museums
 

Rocca Respampani
Sitting on the ancient Roman road - the Via Clodia - today this impressive complex is only reached via the road between Tuscania and Vetralla (km 13,300 - Località Rio Secco), although in the territory of Monte Romano.
A restored early 17th century stately home (1603) built by the Pampani or De Spampani family, it now belongs to the local health authority and is currently used as a cutting-edge farming centre. It's also being considered as a possible convention centre. Among the various attractions inside is a huge fireplace. Not to mention the dungeons.

Visits are often organised, by local organisations, such as the Viterbo branch of the Italian bird protection society LIPU (www.lipuviterbo.org) and the Gruppo Cinofilo Viterbese (dog training and related events).
Excursions also possible on horse-back, by mountain-bike or on foot.

To visit the castle, you need to send a fax to the council: fax. 0766.860777 (contact Erina).
