Castel Ritaldi and the oil DOP of the Necks Martani
Castel Ritaldi, an ancient suburb of Roman origin, rises at the feet of the Colli Martani on the summit of a hill surrounded by olive-tree, just between Spoleto and Montefalco. The olive-tree, typical cultivation of the zone, is the element characterising this area where is produced a good quality extra-virgin-oil, inserted in the DOP of the Colli Martani.

The landscape is typically Umbrian, absorbed in the green of the strong medieval physiognomy. There are lots of buildings of merit, among which we indicate the Pieve di San Gregorio Magno, a sacred building risen around the year 1000, slightly out of the inhabited centre. It possesses a beautiful façade, simple and elegant, decorated with symbolic elements that represent the evangelists.

It goes back to a period between the XIV and XV century the Santa Maria Church, which guards to its inside precious frescos.

One note apart certainly is deserved to the splendid Santuario Madonna della Bruna, magnificent example of Renaissance architecture of Bramante style.

A vacation in the territory of Castel Ritaldi cannot leave apart the tasting of its typical product for excellence, the extra-virgin-oil, characterised by low acidity and the excellent qualities. The olives dominate the panorama, populate the sides of the hills and they colour of all the tonalities. In Castel Ritaldi is possible to taste the fragrant taste of the best Umbrian oil, in a calm and serene environment and in the most total harmony with the nature. The various demonstrations devoted to the oil involve the visitors and the tourists giving them the possibility to visit the places of production of an oil among the more appreciated of the zone.
