Nine hundred years
of noble traditions

Castello di Magione was built in the twelfth century with the function of a hospital for pilgrims traveling to Rome or Jerusalem. The production of wine, which began here in the Middle Ages, represents together with the cultivation of cereals and oil, the historical heritage of the territory.

Only starting from the 1300s, the building began to take on the characteristics of a fortress by increasing its height. The courtyard surrounded by arches welcomes the visitors who is about to visit the Castle.

Custodians of priceless artistic treasures

In the oldest wing of the Castle, there is the Romanesque chapel dedicated to Saint John the Baptist within which there are two frescoes painted by the pupils of Pinturicchio (Sixteenth century).

In 1502, the conspiracy hatched by some nobles against Cesare Borgia took place in this Castle, where Popes and Sovereigns lived on several occasions. This historical event is also known as the “dieta alla Magione nel Perugino” of which Machiavelli speaks in his political treatise “The Prince”.

La Congiura di Magione

In 1502 the famous Conspiracy of Magione took place in the Castle, the plan developed against Cesare Borgia, also known as Il Valentino, by his own captains and allies. This conspiracy takes its name from the place where it was organised, the Castle of the Knights of Malta in Magione.
It was Nicolò Machiavelli who revealed to Cesare Borgia the plans against him hatched during the meeting of the conspirators in Magione and thus make the project fail.
Every year in month July, in the setting of the medieval Castello di Magione, the historical reconstruction entitled ‘Congiura al castello’ takes place. The castle acts as a suggestive scenography for the exciting theatrical representation of the Conspiracy that Cardinal Orsini plotted, right in this place, against Cesare Borgia.
