Testimony of this age are the monumental polygonal walls (V-IV century BC), that surround most of the town, together with those Roman and medieval, for about 2 km.
border town, before umbra then Roman, Amelia has many reminders of its past: the town walls, which is the most important monument, we mention the interesting old town, which stretches for about 25 ha, with its layers, the numerous Renaissance palaces, churches, remains of mosaics and hot baths.
