- STORY :
The area of the former monasteries of SANTA MARIA is a historical place. Alone this deliberately chosen exposed location:
- Gen East, 200 m above the Valle di Lapone (direction Orvieto),
- Gen south directly on the rocky escarpment. The Etruscans have already settled there, as evidenced by the old sun-oriented tuff rockeries of the area.
- In Roman times, the old army road led Cassia directly over the area.
In the Middle Ages, a mighty fortified tower marked the border of the Papal States and old church books bear testimony to monastic life at the time of the Trentine Council. Since secularization, the buildings have mainly been used for agricultural purposes and have been owned by the Bracci Testa Secca family, whose summer residence is still in the immediate neighborhood.
