Places to visit
The structure of Scheggino is the one of a castle on the slant, it has a triangular form with the keep on the high summit and the long side formed by the bank of the river Nera.

Its historical function was to place itself as a block to keep watch of one of the bridges over the river, for a merely defensive purpose which was to protect the dukedom of Spoleto.

The proper inhabited centre developed in the course of the 14th and 15th century, when a community devoted to agriculture sprang up around the castle.

The first circle of walls marks the boundary of the most ancient part of Scheggino, called ''Capo la Terra'', whereas the more recent areas are those sloping down towards the valley and being built around the 16th century with the birth of the village.

Scheggino is immersed in the natural environment of the Valnerina and reflects totally its best characteristics, adding to the typical landscape some completely particular and personal aspects. Not far from the town centre gush out plentifully the sources Fonti di Valcasana, a real natural spectacle which offers an incomparably beautiful view.
