Built by the Orsini family in 1470 around an old medieval fortress dating back to 1200, on the southern shore of Lake Bracciano, besieged by the Borgias and allied with the Medici family, the castle represented the ideal mix between military and Renaissance architecture. Today, thanks to the Livio IV Odescalchi Foundation, the castle is open to the public and welcomes tens of thousands of tourists every year. In addition to the aforementioned Orsini Castle, we obviously highlight the village of Bracciano (11.8 km), the lake of the same name and that of Martignano, protected by an important natural park. The other town overlooking the lake, Anguillara Sabazia (12.4 km), is also worth a visit, while heading north (starting from Trevignano) we can reach the magnificent Sutri (8.4 km), rich in monuments and history. Covering 24.6 km, we recommend a visit to the suggestive ghost town of Monterano. Finally, we remember the geological site of Caldara di Manziana (included in the Bracciano-Martignano Natural Park), near the village of the same name, where we can observe with attention and respect for the place interesting and curious volcanic phenomena such as boiling mud and small geysers.
Don’t miss the traditional night procession on the lake, now in its 63rd edition, which over the years has made Trevignano famous during mid-August, attracting thousands of tourists and spectators at each edition.
A floating scenography, which changes from year to year, carries the picture of the Madonna Assunta, followed by dozens of fishing boats and private boats, adorned with small lights.
During the coastal route of the procession, in addition to the reading of prayers, some sacred songs are interpreted.
During the day, the program includes, in addition to the evocative solemn liturgical celebrations, entertainment activities with morning fishing for children, the traditional market and the prolonged opening of the Roman Etruscan civic museum, as well as an extraordinary and renewed fire show of fireworks that will illuminate the waters in front of the Piazzale del Molo area, from where the Sabazia II motorboat will set off, hosting for the occasion many mayors and institutional authorities of the area.
Lake Bracciano reserves pleasant surprises and to fully enjoy them, there is no better way than taking a tour of the lake or a trip on the “SABAZIA II” boat (official website).
With the itineraries proposed by the Lake Bracciano Consortium, you can combine the pleasure of discovery with a cruise on the lake. You can sail on the lake starting from Trevignano Romano from Piazzale del Molo.
Easily reachable, a stone’s throw from the Town Hall and the PIT, the Trevignano pier, in addition to being the embarkation point for the boat, is also a formidable springboard from which to take your best photos, in the morning or at sunset, of the local beauty and traditions.
Tickets can be purchased directly on the boat when boarding.
