Panicale e Paciano

Panicale: situated high on a hill, this town provides the best outlook for a scenic view of the entire lake. At the very top, the medieval Civic Palace is one of the oldest memories of Panicale.

Just outside the city walls the church of San Sebastiano holds an unexpected treasure: the splendid early 16th century fresco depicting the Martyrdom of the Saint Sebastian, by Pietro Perugino (admittance).

 

 

Paciano: located in the southern part of the lake Trasimeno area, but not directly on the lake,  Paciano is a charming medieval village, recently included in the list of the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” (“Most beautiful towns of Italy”).
 
The city walls are formed by the houses themselves , very often real towers. Inside the walls , three parallel streets will take the visitor to the main churches: St. Joseph, St. Bartholomew and St. Mary. There is even a small art
collection inside a former  chapel.
