The composed name of the city
derives from the Tadinates, ancient inhabitants of Gualdo
and from the German word “wald” (forest) that
it demonstrates the passage and the infuence of the Longobards.
Main stage of the "via Flaminia", knew a period
of splendor but with the fall of Rome was repeatedly plundered
and destroyed and had to wait for the arrival of Federico
Barbarossa and its grandson Federico II of Svevia
in order to know new splendours. The emperor restructured
the Rocca Flea that dominates Gualdo
Tadino and hosts today the Museum of the
Ceramic, true ambassadress in the world of the city.
The visit to Gualdo includes the Duomo of San Benedetto (XIII
cent.) and the church of San Francesco, Gothic bulding decorated
by Matteo di Gualdo, illustrious son of Gualdo.
2 km far from the center there's the Eremo di San
Marzio, once retreat for saints and hermits.
