Campello sul Clitunno

Campello sul Clitunno

Campello sul Clitunno is a town famous for the springs of the Clitunno river and, nearby, the Tempietto del Clitunno, the castles of Campello Alto and Pissignano Alto.

But it is also famous for its extra virgin olive oil. The municipality is the most important site in relation to the quality of the production of extra virgin olive oil in Umbria, thanks to the specific microclimate of a part of the area and the features of the soil.

Campello sul Clitunno is a member of the Associazione nazionale città dell’olio – National Association of Oil Towns.
