Venturing a little further inland from Itri, there are fertile, verdant valleys with
a wonderful patchwork of fields intermittently dotted with traditional old farmhouses.
The picturesque, medieval village of Campodimele is perched high on a hilltop at
an altitude of 645 metres, and is encircled by formidable walls, with 12 cylindrical
turrets, and ancient houses that form part of the defensive structure.
There is a path, which is known by the locals as “Lover’s Lane” which winds around
the town walls, from which there are stunning views of the countryside.

Places of worship include the now disused 13th century church of the Annunziata,
the 11th century church dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo, the Cappella della Madonna
delle Grazie and the little church of La Madonna del Rosario which was constructed
after the war.
