Orvieto and its territory
Going through the gorge of the Forello, the Tevere River
leads us towards the lake of Corbara. After a vertical landscape
made of rocks rushing into the river, the view opens itself
over a lacustrian prospective, sweeter and with morbid surroundings.
You are going through a magical landscape, linking the so
many corners of a region that always surprises. Also here,
like in other places, everything invites to quietness, for
a great feeling of peace. To spend serene and quiet moments,
you can stay at the AGRITURISMO
BARBERANI, where it is possible to visit the cellars
and to taste the excellent wines of the area. Leaving the
Tevere river which, at a certain moment, continues its way
towards the High Lazio, one arrives soon after to the rock
of Orvieto. This city of antique tuff is an extraordinary
place for the spirit, its morbid rocks, sculpted by the
time are softening the noises, are making everything peaceful.
The heart of this unique place is the Catheral. Ordered
by the Pope Niccolò IV in 1290 to Lorenzo Maitani,
it has a large façade rich of bas reliefs, statues,
mosaics, arches; the inside is also imposing and is a fundamental
stop on your way towards the mysticism and the meditation
going through Umbria.
