Cities and Towns in Umbria

When one thinks of Umbria, one imagines a region rich in medieval towns perched on the hilltops and mountain side. Foligno represents one of the few exceptions, a medieval town built on the low lying land. In this Foligno is unique.

Foligno is also about age old traditions, which are still held closely observed. One of the occasions not to be missed is Giostra della Quintana, an equestrian display accompanied by marvelous period costumes, tournaments and medieval gastronmic fare, reliving the 1400s, and which catapults the visitor in to the atmosphere of ancient times.

In addition to the local traditions, one is struck by imposing historical buildings such as the Cathedral, the Palazzo Comunale, Palazzo Pretorio, Palazzo Orfini, Palazzo Trinci, the Romanesque Church of St Maria Infraportas, the Abbey of Sassovivo. Foligno is medieval art immersed in unspoilt nature, in the valley where the River Topino flows, a place to relax and reflect which will not easily be forgotten.
