In the Park there are villages, forts, bridges, fountains, churches, shrines, monasteries, abbeys, oratories and kiosks which increase the historical and architectural value of the territory. The succession of all these small but important works, inserted in a framework with strong agricultural and rural connotations, is one of the major tourist attractions of the territory.
Villages
Armenzano
It is located at the top of a hill at the beginning of the Fosso Marchetto valley. Typical example of a feudal settlement, which developed in the medieval period, has a compact design and an almost circular plan, bordered by a ring road. The town walls are well-preserved; from the rounded entry arch, a narrow pedestrian street rises with spiral path to the dominant structure at the center of the entire complex.
Costa di Trex
It is located in a scenic location 573 meters above sea level and overlooks the course of the River Tescio and Fosso Marchetto. The name comes from a contraction of the Coast of Three Churches: in particular it refers to the church of Saint Stefano (on the outer wall is an urn from Roman times), the church of Saint Bartholomew and the church of San Lorenzo, which is now private property.
Collepino
Not far from Spello, along a road surrounded by olive trees, typical of the area, there is the village of Collepino. It has medieval origins and looks like a typical walled village.
San Giovanni
Along the road from Spello to Assisi, between Collepino and Armenzano lies the castle-village of San Giovanni. It opens towards the valley of the Topino River and behind the village the Pale terrain extends up the slopes of Mount Subasio and comes up to the meadows at the summit. In the village church, according to tradition, erected in the place where St. Francis worked one of his miracles, there are frescoes of 1600.
Lanciano
Lanciano is a village in the municipality of Nocera Umbra. The term comes from the Latin Lantius Lanciano, indicating the name of the owner of these lands. The town is the development of an ancient fortified settlement, which originally functioned as a watch tower. The urban structure of the village resides on the slopes of the hill dominated by the medieval tower and spreads along both sides of the ancient connection road. At the highest point of the village, at an altitude of 676 m above sea level, stands the small church of Lanciano.
