CITTA’ DI CASTELLO: Surrounded for long stretches by the sixteenth-century walls, the “breath of art” is found in the evocative atmosphere of the historic center, in the elegant Renaissance architecture, in the courtyards and arcades of the noble palaces, in the cloisters and in the naves of the churches; from the monumental Cathedral ( 11th century) with its treasures, in Santa Maria Maggiore, Santa Maria delle Grazie, San Francesco and San Domenico. But also in the masterpieces of Raffaello and Luca Signorelli and in the creations of Alberto Burri, one of the great masters of international contemporary art, who left many of his works in the city that gave him his birth.
UMBERTIDE: In the historic center stands the Rocca, a superb medieval fortress, which has always been a symbol of the city. Noteworthy are the octagonal church of Santa Maria della Reggia (16th century), and the church of Santa Croce (1610), the church of San Bernardino (1556), the church of Santa Maria della Pietà (1486), with a fresco attributed to Pinturicchio . The castles of Civitella Ranieri, Serra Partucci, and the ancient medieval villages of Montemigiano and Santa Giuliana are worth a visit. Among the numerous ancient churches we highlight the abbey of San Salvatore and the hermitage of Monte Corona, 700 meters high in a forest of beech and chestnut trees overlooking the underlying Camaldolese abbey founded in 1008
GUBBIO: Area rich in natural beauty and art treasures where history, culture and landscape coexist in a harmonious symbiosis. Next to historic centers of extraordinary beauty and charm that preserve excellent evidence of the medieval era, it offers nature with uncontaminated environments and artistic craft productions that testify to the centuries-old mastery of a consolidated ability. I CERI is a famous event that takes place every year on May 15th, the eve of the feast of the patron Saint Ubaldo. They are three tall and heavy wooden artifacts surmounted by the statues of Sant ‘Ubaldo (protector of the Masons), of San Giorgio (protector of the Merciai) and of Sant’ Antonio Abate (protector of the Asinari and Peasants and, more recently, of the students) , carried on the shoulders and running through the streets of the city to the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo, at the top of Mount Ingino. Gubbio, defined as the “gray city”, has this nickname for the compact and uniform color of the limestone blocks with which this splendid village is built.
