Welcome to Gualdo Cattaneo

Residence, Hosteria and Restaurant “Il Grottino”

Gualdo Cattaneo is a small and enchanting jewel in the province of Perugia.
What is striking, once you arrive at your destination, are the magnificent panoramic views that can be enjoyed from the top of its 446 meters above sea level.
In fact, the town stands on a hill on the slopes of the Martani Mountains.
Enclosed within the fifteenth-century walls, the town is a real defensive complex consisting of castles and fortified buildings.
Everything is immersed in a splendid natural setting, which helps to create an even more suggestive atmosphere.

A bit of history

Contended for centuries between Spoleto and Foligno, the ancient Gualdum Captaneorum has a very respectable history.
The toponym has undoubtedly a Lombard origin: the term Gualdo derives from "Wald" (forest, wood) and Cattaneo from "Captaneorum" (captains, lords in the service of the king).
It is no coincidence that the foundation of the village took place precisely through the work of Count Edoardo Cattaneo, who in 975 was a vassal of Emperor Otto II of Saxony.
The count received this small territory on the Martani Mountains as a fief and built a fortification there.
