Hence the landscape is in fact, a succession of a perfect geometry of vineyards, villages and medieval castles. As well as villas from the Renaissance, and patrician houses. Furthermore, along your way, you will find churches, hermitages, and monasteries. As a result, in our times, the Benedictine and the Camaldolese live in these religious sites.
