Castelluccio è una frazione del comune di Norcia (PG).
Il paese si trova in cima ad una collina che si eleva sull'omonimo altopiano, uno dei più vasti dell'Italia centrale ed inserito nel Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini. L'altezza di 1.452 m s.l.m. ne fa il centro abitato più elevato dell'Appennino Umbro-Marchigiano e di tutti gli Appennini. Di fronte ad esso si erge imponente la sagoma del Monte Vettore (2.478 m).

Il nucleo attuale risale al XIII secolo, anche se alcune ricerche tendono a retrodatarne la fondazione.
