TREIA

Founded by Romans around the 380 a.C., derives its name from the goddess Trea-Jana, divinity of Greek-sicilian origin that here was venerated.

Situated on a secundary street of the Flaminia Way, Treia knew a period of remarkable development during the Republic and the Roman Empire becoming municipium in 99 b.C.
The end of the Empire marked also the end of Roman Treia: plundered and destroyed by Goths with the population taking refuge on the three near hills, first nuclea of the modern Treia.
In the X century the three castles on the three hills united themselves and the locality took the name of Montecchio, under the directed infuence of the Pope. Becouse of this the city was besieged by the imperial troops of Federico II of Svevia in 1239.
It knew then the lordship of Da Varano and Sforza, passing in 1447 under the Aragon.
Returned to the church, in 1790 Pio VI gave to it the title of city restoring the ancient name of Treia. In 1798 it made part of the Roman Republic wanted by Napoleone Bonaparte in order to return then to the Church until its unification to the Reign of Italy.

Treia is a medieval village perfectly conserved that leaves the visitor suggestions through its panoramic stoned alleys and panoramic views.
In Treia can be visited the Roman ruins in locality SS. Crocifisso, where also rises the omonimous church that keeps to its inside a curious crucifix, perhaps by Donatello, in which the Christ assumes various expressions depending on the observation point.

Treia is dipped in a involving nature that must be discovered following the routes that include ancient villas and ruins like the Roccaccia, tower of guard of Middle Ages or the hermitage of S. Sperandia.
