This is where Cesare Agostini and Franco Santi, after numerous excavations, unearthed the first stretch of Roman road. The flagstones have never been repaired or replaced, so what we see today has a powerful air of history about it. 

The name of this mountain comes from the remains of an ancient fortress (or "castelliere") at the summit, with a circular place-of-arms of about fifty meters in diameter, defended to the Northwest by two deep ditches, and to the Southeast by a precipice.
