Located on the slopes of Monte Igino, Gubbio seems to have remained intact over time. The Basilica of St. Ubaldo seems to protect it from above, the unique seven bronze Iguvine Tablets, which tell of ancient acts and rites, and the Roman Theatre which is just outside the walls, are all witnesses of a glorious past, but it is the Middle Ages that has left the deepest imprint. The Palazzo dei Consoli has become the town’s symbol as a perfect work of the early 1300s and as host to the municipal museum.
The Cathedral was erected in 1229 and contains paintings of the sixteenth century. Among the churches, that of St. Francis takes on a special meaning not only for its works of art within but also for the memory of the Saint himself.
This is where, according to the legend, the wolf that Francis had tamed took refuge.
