Parish church of Vallocchia

The settlement of Vallocchia rises about 800 meters above sea level, along an ancient path that from Spoleto led to the Valnerina, then passing through the base of Castel del Monte, where it forked into two itineraries, one for Raischio lo Scoppio and Caselli, where it rejoined for the other that branched off to Sensati and the Cese. It consists of two inhabited areas, upstream the real Vallocchia, with the ancient church of San Pietro; downstream Pieve di Vallocchia, where in truth there is no trace of a parish church, but there is an ancient fortress locally called the Castellone. Architectural elements of a certain value remain in the inhabited area, which denote a past prominence of the place, lost over the centuries. Today the area is known above all for its centuries-old chestnut grove
