Trevignano's historical centre.

Trevignano Romano is a small town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Rome, Lazio, central Italy. With a population of about 5,000, it is located on Lake Bracciano. It is about 47 kilometres (29 mi) away from Rome.

Main sights

Etruscan tombs from the 8th - 6th centuries BCE have been found in the hills north of Trevignano. Well-preserved artifacts from two of these tombs are on display at the local Roman Etruscan Museum.

The castle was erected around 1200 by order of Pope Innocent III, and later reinforced by the Orsini. It once had 3 layers of massive walls, but the siege of Cesare Borgia in 1497 and subsequent earthquakes have reduced the structures to a state of poor-repair.
