The Valnerina

History, tradition culture, are expression of a nature sometime wild and extreme, sometimes rich and characterised by the presence of man. The landscape alternates mountains to valley and the deep woods of the Valley of the river Nera.

Castles and medieval towns, wonderful Romanesque churches full of artistic treasures emerge unexpected from the luxurious nature or just they lie with no memory like sentinels of green dales.

At the gates of the Sibillini National Park in a nature rich in protected flora and fauna, you can still find in the multitude of the pieces of art spread all over the territory, the traces of the great masters who worked in the biggest town of Umbria.

During all the year you can and take part in manifestations and historical revocations some of which derive from ancient shepherds and peasants’ traditions some from religion and medieval Chilvary.

The great variety and richness of food and gastronomic products is due to the folkloric traditions and the integrity of the ecosystem, from the cheese of sheep to the hams, from the biological agriculture( farro ) to the fruits of the woods (black truffles) to the game ( wild boar ) to river fishing (crayfish and trout).

These are the main ingredients of the excellent Umbrian cooking, that you can taste in every town of the Nera Valley: typical healthy plates, cohich follow the flowing of seasons despite their simplicity, will satisfy the most discerning and insatiable palates mouths.
