Nocera Umbra

Overview

Orange Flag of the Italian Touring Club

On the slopes of Mount PennineNocera Umbra, a village with a very ancient origin, is known as the "city of waters” for its mineral water, in particular that of the Angelica spring at the former spa of Bagni di Nocera. The town was hit hard by the 1997 earthquake, but was able to respond and recover as much of its original heritage as possible to restore it to the community and visitors.

Powerful walls surround the historic centre, on the top of which stands the Duomo, the town's main church. Also worth visiting are the neo-Gothic church of San Filippo with a splendid rose window decorating the façade, Piazza Caprera, a true hub of city life, with the church of San Francesco, now used as an art gallery, and the Episcopal Palace, which houses the Archaeological Museum.

The surround area is worth discovering gradually, through walks, mountain bike rides, the "Oasi del respiro" exercise route and the multisensory experience of the garden of aromatic colours.

When dining, you should try the Umbria "Colli Assisi-Spoleto" DOP extra-virgin olive oilbiscio (savoury cake of Lombard origin) and ciaciette, fritters that go well with cold cuts, cheeses, vegetables and creams, and are normally cooked during the Palio dei Quartieri, a very important and busy event that takes place between July and August.
