Local information

  • Montone, Perugia, Umbria

Additional information

  • Montone is located between Città di Castello and Umbertide in the Upper Tiber Valley in northern Umbria. Montone is an enchanting village perched on top of a hill that has preserved its fascinating medieval origins. Because of its remarkable environmental, cultural and artistic heritage it was included in the club of 'The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy'. The building of greatest artistic interest in Montone is the Gothic Church of San Francesco (14th century) with a single nave and polygonal apse. The church is also the home of the Municipal Museum, which holds paintings, silver and sacred vestments of great artistic value and, on the ground floor, the Ethnographic Museum, with over 600 items from Eastern Africa. Another important religious building is the Parish Church of San Gregorio, Montone's oldest church, built in about 1000 AD in the Romanesque-Byzantine style. There are also several good restaurants here and breathtaking views from its elevated position.
