Casale di Barattano
The imposing farmhouse rises above the castle of Barattano, which you can see in the WS.
In the Gualdese castles system, Barattano is the most marked archetype. It was built in the 13th century with the name of Villa S. Angelo in Piscina, probably fortified shortly thereafter. It is said that the current name was given "for the quality of the fraudulent people who lived there". In 1261 Filippo di Barattano was captain of the people in Todi during the podesta of Filippo degli Ugoni from Brescia. it was then surrounded, in 1452, by a mighty wall structure.
In 1540 the castle sent a worker to Perugia for the construction of the Rocca Paolina. The castle remained for centuries under the influence of Todi: in 1802 it was united with Gualdo Cattaneo, in 1815 with San Terenziano, and then in 1861 again with Gualdo Cattaneo.
