Norcia was founded by the Sabini behind the Sibillini mountains and already in the II century B.C. became a growing Roman municipium. The town of Norcia, surrounded by still intact walls of the 1300s, is rich of historical-artistic evidence and, in addition to its beauty and to nature trails, offers a rich, genuine cuisine and typical products. Norcia is a gastronomic paradise, rich and refined. Lentils from Castelluccio, spelt, valuable black truffle (tuber melanosporum), the real king of Norcia’s traditional recipes, all kinds of cheese, such as pecorino cheese and caciotta , but, above all, “norcineria”, the noble and ancient art of working pork meat that dates back to the 1200s and has made Norcia famous all over the world. The smell of salumi, of prosciutti of Norcia and of other typical products will surround you along the town streets. Behind the town walls you can find the “Marcite”, large areas where the water, collected and distributed through channels invented by the Benedictine monks in 400-500 A.D., floods constantly under control for long periods thus permitting rich hay harvesting.
