Explore the wonderful city of Norcia in the company of our specialised guides and see the fascinating combination of nature and architecture. The most important piazza in the town also hosts the most interesting sites, such as the ancient Roman pagan temple dedicated to the Goddess Fortuna Argentea, which is now the Cattedrale di Santa Maria Argentea. Inside there are several noteworthy works, including a beautiful fresco by the bottega degli Sparapane (Sparapane family workshop) and a Crucifix by the sculptor Giovanni Teutonico. In the same square, Piazza San Benedetto, we’ll stop to look at the remains of the Basilica di San Benedetto, of which only the facade, apse and part of the naves remain as a result of a violent earthquake in 2016. Inside the Basilica the ancient house of San Benedetto and his twin sister, Santa Scolastica, are apparently synonymous with the crypt, where you can also see the remains of an ancient Roman building. Take the time to contemplate the majestic and imposing Palazzo Comunale and the striking fortress of La Castellina right opposite. Visits are allowed inside La Castellina, where you can see various treasures exhibited in the Museo Civico which is housed within. We will walk along the charming alleyways that characterise the village of Norcia and stop to admire the Tempietto, a masterpiece of medieval sculpture which has a 14th-century fresco depicting the Madonna with Child and saints enclosed within it.
