Appointment at h 10.00 at the parking lot at the southern entrance of the city. The excursion will head out to the Fortilizio dei Mulini (at the other end of the Ponte delle Torri), on the slopes of Monteluco, along the Giro dei Condotti, towards the Spoleto’s Thrust Fault.
The Fortilizio dei Mulini was a Medieval watchtower over the bridge, and a grinding mill. It stood at the confluence of two aqueducts, one from Cortaccione and the other from Patrico. Before being canalised into the bridge, the water used to activate the grinder of a mill that was operative till the end of the XIX century.
The Giro dei Condotti is a charming trekking route that offers exceptional glimpses on Spoleto and its valley. The name “giro dei condotti” testifies to the presence of the old water ducts underneath the pathway.
The route features 200-million-years-old rock stratifications, including the particularly interesting Spoleto’s Thrust Fault which is the object of this excursion. It is a fault that features older rocks overlapping on younger ones, more specifically, a vast area of Jurassic rock on Cretaceous/Paleogenic rock. Along the Giro dei Condotti there is a rock wall that clearly displays the deformation effect of this overlapping. Another geological phenomenon is visible along the route, i.e. the erosion that produces a tectonic window.
The route goes on then toward Monteluco, its Sacred Wood, and Patrico. The full route lasts 2-3 hours about (stops included).
Your packed lunch will take place on the lawns at Monteluco, and will be followed by the route extension to Castelmonte (2 hours, stops included).
