Sant'Anatolia di Narco

Overview

The hemp village in the heart of Umbria

Situated in the province of Perugia, the small village of Sant'Anatolia di Narco still preserves its medieval structure intact: access gates and 14th-century walls, on which two 15th-century towers stand out. The town stands on a river terrace overlooking the flat area below, which is called “le canapine”, in memory of when hemp was cultivated along the banks of the Nera river

The main square houses the former Town Hall, now the seat of the Hemp Museum, where a rich collection of textile artefacts from the area can be admired. The small Church of Sant'Anatolia, dedicated to the Roman martyr from the 3rd century AD, contains frescoes dating back to the 14th century. 

There are numerous castles and places of worship around the town. Among these, Castel San Felice, an ancient medieval centre known for the Abbey of Saints Felice and Mauro, one of the most striking examples of Umbrian Romanesque architecture, deserves a mention.
