NOCERA UMBRA

Gently laid down on a hill along the via Flaminia, Nocera Umbra has ancient origin being founded by the Umbri in the VI cent. b.C. with the name of Noukria.

It passed then under the Roman domination and was destroyed by the Ghots (410 d.C) and by the troops of Federico II in 1248 during the fights with the Papal State. The ancient city rose however on the valley and only after the first barbaric invasions it was moved on the hill fortifying itself.
Nocera Umbra is famous for its therapeutic mineral waters remembered to the visitor with a Fountain in Piazza Cabrera and with two Fontana to the sides of Porta Vecchia. Symbols of Nocera are the Torre Campanaccio, remain of the ancient fortress destroyed by Federico II and the Duomo, risen on an ancient Roman temple dedicated to the goddess Favonia.
During the first week of August the city is transformed from the Palio dei Quartieri, 2 factions challenge themselves with processions, equestrian races, running races (della Dama Infedele e della Portantina) and finally cooking competition.
