Otricoli

Overview

Millennia of history on the border between Umbria and Lazio

Otricoli has a history stretching back thousands of years, with roots in the Iron Age. Even today, its archaeological excavations make it one of Umbria's most fascinating destinations. Of particular interest is the Archaeological Park, which houses the remains of the settlement in Roman times.

Among the best preserved monuments are the public fountain, the imposing theatre and amphitheatre, the baths and the archaic necropolis. Particularly fascinating are the so-called “great substructures”, buildings consisting of 12 rooms on two floors. Scholars are still uncertain about the purpose of these constructions, which are characteristic of Otricoli. Also stop for a visit to the Antiquarium Casale S. Fulgenzio: the building, built on an ancient Roman cistern, now houses valuable archaeological artefacts such as vases, urns and sculptures. Nature lovers will not be disappointed: the park is the natural habitat of a variety of flora and fauna.

The historical centre of Otricoli is enclosed by medieval walls in which the Porta Maior and Porta San Severino open. Several original elements, such as the towers (three round and two square) and the 14th-century fortress, are still preserved here, and one can breathe in the atmosphere of times gone by.
