Pennabilli was created by the union of two castles in the 11th century. "Penna" which is now Roccione and "Billi "which is now Rupe.

The walls and gates enclose the ruins of the two castles and several Renaissance mansions.

It is a lovely small comunity. The history of this place is amazing. Most if not all of the people living here have lived here for centuries.

During holidays we get many visitors from all over Europe. Every summer the town hosts, Artisti in Piazza, it is a week long fesival in which performers and artists from around world travel to Pennabilli to perform.

In my picture you can see a portion of the "Billi" castle that is now used as a nunery.
