I love to go around Umbria: it’s the Italian region near Latium, only one hour away from Rome. As I wrote in the past, I feel very tight to this area because I came here a lot with my family. Now I still visit this area which I believe it offers everything. It has history, architecture, landscapes and great food…do we really need anything else?
I believe that the Medieval villages are the most relevant treasure of Umbria. They are all in great conditions, while they maintain their charm. What feels amazing to me, is that people actually live there. It might sound obvious, but if we think about it for a moment, it’s actually amazing. Could you picture yourself living in a 1200 home? You feel this transport to an old dimension, also because cars can’t always access into these towns. Only to mention few of them: Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto and Assisi. There are a lot more, it’s incredible that there are so many. If you would like to see a look from Montoro, a little Umbrian town, you might like this post.
Here I am in the Abbey of San Nicolò, in San Gemini. I’m so happy to tell you about this church because I have found out about it just recently. This abbey is right outside the walls of the town San Gemini, but you won’t see it from the street. From the outside, the entrance looks like a park and we actually thought it was one. We realized there was an ancient church only when we entered.
It dates back to the 1100, during the European Middle Age. Now it’s a private church, it’s open to the public only from Friday to Sunday. Its architecture is simply amazing, I wish I could show you the inside of it, but I couldn’t take photos. Both the outside and inside of the church are well kept. The garden has gorgeous than e has flowers and trees.
