The town Giano dell'Umbria
Placed in a splendid panoramic position,
around two kilometres of distance away from Giano dell'Umbria
the marvellous Abbazia of San Felice
, an ancient monastic complex risen
beginning from the X century. The church is an admirable example of Romanesque
Umbrian architecture, with evident Lombard influences. It rises on the place in
which San Felice
, bishop of Massa Martana
, founded in 306 a small
oratory, inside which today rest his bare.
In the city centre they deserve a visit is
the Palazzo Pubblico
, the actual centre of the Town-hall
hosts a precious harvest of Roman finds, is the Parish Church of San Michele
built in the XIII century and recently restored, that underlines clear traces
of its Romanesque imprint.
