Panicale is a classic hilltop Umbrian castle village with a breathtaking view on the Lake Trasimeno. It is located on the eastern slope of Mount Petrarvella, in the southeast of Valdichiana. In the heart of the historical center, in Piazza Umberto I, there is a fountain whose travertine construction dates back to 1473. Panicale is the birthplace of a great painter, Pietro Vannucci, better known as Il Perugino. The largest church of the village (Chiesa di San Michele) contains “The Annunciation of the Virgin”, a fresco made by the famous Renaissance painter Tommaso Fini, also known as Masolino da Panicale (1383 – 1447).
