The route starts from the "Forte Sangallo", whose construction began at the end of the fifteenth century on a previous Rocca, by the will of Pope Alexander VI and designed by Antonio Sangallo il Vecchio and Perino da Caravaggio; the work was completed during the pontificate of Julius II, with the intervention of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger. The structure retains the characteristics of the fortifications, but also presents the conformation of the Renaissance palace, with papal apartments and charming courtyard of honor to the old: in the center, an octagonal well and in the vaults of the porch that surrounds the courtyard, interesting frescoes referable to Borgia.

By preserving the profound echo of the Middle Ages and of the Christian tradition, Via Amerina has succeeded in absorbing the historical and artistic memories of the areas concerned, offering the reference point for the identification of a precise cultural and environmental itinerary.
