CASCIA

Cascia is famous all over the world in order to have given birth to Saint Rita, born in 1381. Every year the 21st and 22nd of May take place the celebrations ritiane that recall people from all the world.

Cascia, like all the centers of Umbria, has an ancient origin.
Founded before the birth of Rome it became then an important Roman center. To testify this period it remains the splendid temple of Villa S. Silvestro and more archaeological finds are kept in the Museum of Palazzo Santi.
Cascia knew its period of maximum splendour during the Middle Age and is for the architecture of this period that Cascia becomes an art city: the Gotich churches of San Francesco and Sant'Agostino, both built in the XIV cent. To a previous period it belongs the collegiata di Santa Maria, built by Longobards and subsequently restored many times: its interior keeps a precious wooden crucifix.

Cascia today, reveals a more modern face, having had to organize the practicability and the management of the great flow of pilgrims devout to Saint Rita.
