The wonder of St. Francis lies in the beauty of his "Spoleto Valley", as it was called the Umbrian Valley and it still amazes current travellers the way it did then. The landscape which overlooks the valley is an alternating series of small villages rich in history and beautiful Franciscan landscapes.

Our lands, Poreta's lands, embrace every aspect of this landscape. Located in a privileged part of Poreta visitors are offered easy access to major tourist destinations of the area such as Spoleto, Trevi, Assisi, Bevagna, Perugia, Valnerina and the entire mountainous Terminillo park.
