Bettona, a small medieval suburb leaned out on Umbria
Who goes to Bettona
will never be
fed up to look everything, thanks to so many wonder that it offers to the
visitor. The handles of the road that conduct above the hill where Bettona rises,
already point out us the nature of the urban composition, made of solid
boundaries to protect a suburb as the ancient Umbrian Etruscan
The traces of his ancient past are notable, starting from the boundaries
themselves, in a lot of sides erected above and close to the enormous stones of
clear Etruscan ancestry. Various archaeological finds and a splendid grave,
stay to strengthen this ancient Etruscan nature of the IV century B.C.
Another important place is Bettona,
coming from a less distant past, when Umbria
furnished a high-class
course to the Renaissance
. To illuminate the scene '' Madonna of
'', work of the Perugino
preserved in the Pinacoteca
, prepared in the Palazzotto del Podestà
built in 1371.
Making the turn of the boundaries Bettona
discloses completely its enchantment, when it's noticed that from its balcony
opens a sight that makes wide open the eyes. With a blink from up there, it's
possible to dominate the whole underlying lowland extending up to reach Perugia,
and the Mount Subasio
, embracing with a look all the
wonder that Umbria can offer. The enjoyable panorama is not second to anything.
The eyes contemplate without laying every gradation of green, the cultivated
fields and the activity of the underlying countries, the slopes of the hills
and the mountains that delimit the border, reaching the near cities of Perugia,
Assisi and Spello, which allows to admire so near that seems almost to be able
to touch them.
