A piece of heaven in the heart of Umbria
Placed along the Via Flaminia
, there is the territory of Campello
a real bucolic heaven. It's a place out of the usual that
surprises for the simplicity of its beauty, where clear waters reflect the
verdant images of the luxuriant vegetation growing all around the source. The
sources of river Clitunno
are the real nucleus in which the town
territory is identified, a precious environmental gem, where the lake, the
plants and the local fauna constitute a natural ecosystem of rare beauty.
Spring waters escape from the ground and
from the rocks through the springs, visible on the fund of the lake, which is
surrounded by willows and poplars. A true wonder for the eyes and a comfort for
the soul. Once arrived on the shores of the little pond it opens a pastoral
vision that directly postpones to the poetry of the Arcadia
, to the odes
of Lord Byron
and the Carducci
, in suspended time, where reality
and imagination mix in a game of lights and very suggestive colours.
All induces to the calm and the serenity.
The sources have something pure and native, appear indeed as an uncontaminated
destination, where the visitors can feel as one thing together with the nature
and part of it.
To few hundred meters from the sources
there's the Tempietto del Clitunno
, a Christian building probably risen
in the V century.
Enchantment of the
poets and eternal source of inspiration, the delicate power of the elements is
emitted in the sources of the Clitunno in all its power, where every element is
composed in a mosaic of great harmony. Anyone who looks for a poetic landscape,
a fresco in movement, will certainly find some answers along the soils of the
source, where the symphony of the nature manifests in all of its
