Castle of Attigliano (TR)
The place where now rises Attigliano was inhabited since ancient times. In the inland areas, especially in the "Malvicino" area, the remains of some tombs dug in the tuff and pottery, demonstrate the permanence in the places of Etruscan people. There are also notable testimonies of the later Roman era, such as inscriptions and coins of the Augustan period, remains of walls, connected to the port, and lead water installations, of clear Roman mold.
The center grew and prospered in the imperial age, but its history is interrupted by the low empire; malaria economic crisis and barbarian invasions, typical evils of the time, determine the end.
But Attigliano already in the eleventh century was a fortified place and had functioning a small river port in the area called "Portovecchio", near the current cemetery. At that time the Tiber touched the walls of the castle of Attigliano and the entrance to the village was via a drawbridge. On the other hand, the same name can derive from the presence of numerous lime trees (ad tilium) on the banks of the same Tiber.
