Piazza Augusto Vera - 05022 Amelia
On top of a hill, almost opposite from Guardea Vecchia, there is the castle of Poggiorimasto, unchanged for over a thousand years. Probably it was built at the beginning of the XI century, incorporating existing structures.
It has always been home of celebrities: Lucrezia Borgia, who received the castle as a present from his brother Cesare, Filiberto of Savoy, Princess Olimpia Maidalchini Pamphili, and the famous Italian -american comedian Jimmy Savo  Currently, after a thorough restoration by the current owner, it is the Italian branch of the Club of Budapest aimed at the development of universal consciousness.
