▌ Discover Amelia
The town of Amelia lays on the top of a rocky hill on whose land, olive and ilex threes grow all around, only interrupted by the river Tevere.
The histoy of Amelia is as old as legend is. The enormous town walls date the VI century b.C.: originally formed by huge bricks, they have been modified during roman era and middle ages. To notice, in this respect, the Roman Door. Today Amelia is a dynamic and modern town, which has been able to take advantage from its geographic position, to impose itself in the world gastronomy elite, and which is conscient of the enormous value of its artistic and archeological wealth. Beside the town walls, several cisterns and roman houses testify the importance of Amelia during the Caesars empires.
Dating middle ages, the following churches have to be reminded. The curch of San Pancrazio, whose door is a rare example of decorative art, the church of San Francesco, inside preserving some sculptures of Agostino di Duccio, the dome, which, although modified during baroque age, date the first half of XI century, as still testified by the bell tower. Finally the church of Madonna delle Cinque Fonti, where San Francesco from Assisi rested. Remarkable also the palaces Farrattini e Petrignani (XVI century), erected during the seignioury age.
