GUALDO TADINO

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.
