Montefalco is not only '' to drink '', although the fame of the Sagrantino darkens the
whole rest. But even if removing from its the panorama all the bottles, the
barrels and the grapevines of Montefalco, probably most of its charm would remain
unchanged. Also Montefalco belongs to the club of the most beautiful Italian
Suburbs, the association that gathers that places that the Middle Ages has
delivered us to admire.
The today's name is due to the presence of
the emperor Federico II di Svevia, and to its passion for the falcons,
while the urban structure is dominated by an anxiety of perfection. The central
square is risen as a highland on the tallest point in the city, from which
radially depart the streets and roads that conduct to every corner of the city.
On the piazza del Comune is found the Palazzo Comunale, of the
XIII century, then the Palazzo de Cuppis, and then still buildings,
churches and medieval structures shed in the rest of Montefalco.
