Montefalco

Balcony of Umbria

Panorama, enologia e dipinti di un grande maestro del Rinascimento

Montefalco, the “balcony of Umbria”, is celebrated for its unique location that offers a breathtaking 360° view of the Umbrian Valley from Spoleto to Perugia, from the Apennines to the Martani mountains.

This hilltop town is still completely surrounded by the medieval walls and its five gates. The main monument is the Church of Saint Francis with the famous Renaissance frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli and Perugino.

Well known as the city of the Sagrantino wine, a strong and full-body red wine appreciated by connoisseurs around the world, which makes Montefalco a regular stop on any eno-gastronomic tour.
