About this spot
Vulci was an ancient Etruscan city, and this location offers a spectacular view of the same-named Castle (also called Castello dell’Abbadia), which was built to defend the Ponte del Diavolo (Devil’s Bridge), a picturesque Etruscan-Roman bridge which in bygone times supported the aqueduct bringing water to the city. The castle was originally a Benedictine abbey (hence the name), dedicated to St. Mamiliano: its strategic position in the area between the Papal State and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the important artery on which the bridge was built dictated its transformation to a fortified castle, in a trapezoidal shape and with a lookout tower.
