Monteluco has always been a special place and the inhabitants of Spoleto (but not only them) have reserved in each century particular attentions to this limestone promontory thickly covered with big evergreen trees. Phisically separated from the town by the big incision of the Torrent Tessino, but reconnected to it by that extraordinary manu fact that is the Bridge of the Towers, during the centuries, the mount has had a history closely correlative to the history of men.

We know that in antiquity the inhabitants of Spoleto had populated it with their divinities (the lucus was the sacred wood) and it's probable that particular prescriptions for the access and the conservation of the wood where already in current use.
