Castello di Stroncone – Stroncone (TR)

Stroncone is a town of 5,007 inhabitants in the province of Terni.
The site on which the town of Stroncone stands could be identified with that of the ancient Trebula Suffena, but there is no definite information to confirm this hypothesis.
It is probable, however, that the settlement arose during the early Middle Ages, perhaps built by populations who previously lived in the valley floor, which became insecure, and who saw in the new site, located on the high ground, a more easily defensible refuge.
It probably arose from a small defensive element, a watchtower placed to guard some important road axes for that time.
Stroncone was, in fact, in a border area between the Lombard Duchy of Spoleto and the territories under the control of the Byzantines.
