AMELIA

Amelia is between the historical villages of Umbria the one that can boast of most ancient foundation. To testify this faraway past remain some huge walls erected by Pelasgi after the conquest of the village founded in the 1134 a.C by a king named Ameroe. The city then was taken by Umbri, Etruscans and Romans becoming an unique witness of the dominations happened in this region.
Amelia receives the visitor from Porta Romana, and introduces him in an historical atmosphere of irresistibile fascination. Among the spots of sure interest we like to remember the Cathedral of Santa Firminia, erected in the XI-XII sec., the medieval churches of Saint Pancrazio and Saint Francesco and that rural one of the Madonna delle 5 Fonti, that offered shelter to Saint Francisco.
Amelia, at the same way of Narni, is moreover interesting for its underground cavities. Very famous the Cisterne Romane, constructed in the I cent. b.C. and restored at the end of 1800's are now open to the public with guided excursions.
