S. Anatolia di Narco (Perugia province)

A town of SE Umbria: 42°44N, 12°50.4E. Altitude: 328 m. Population in 2003: 600.

Sant' Anatolia di Narco is a small town in the valley of the Nera (usually called the Valnerina), on the road from Terni and Scheggino (35 km and 4 km SW respectively) to Cerreto di Spoleto (about 12 km northeast).

The town itself has several churches of interest, of which S. Maria delle Grazie, currently undergoing restoration, is probably the best, with attractive frescoes and Roman inscriptions; but the most beautiful monument in the comune is without a doubt the abbey of San Felice di Narco. Also in town, an unusual museum showcasing hemp and its uses, primarily as cloth.

A proper website will eventually appear here, since I've been to S. Anatolia and S. Felice and walked part of the area. In the meanwhile, you should find it useful to read the Sept. 6 and Sept. 8, 2000 entries of my diary, which include 3 more good photos; for further information, see the websites linked in the navigation bar at the bottom of this page.


Like most of the comuni in Italy, Sant' Anatolia includes in its territory some smaller towns and hamlets, of a few hundred inhabitants if that, with a certain administrative identity of their own: as elsewhere in Italy, these are referred to as the frazioni of the comune (singular: frazione, literally a "fraction"): a complete list of them follows. Except for S. Felice, I haven't been to any of them yet, and links will be offsite.

Caso • Gavelli • Grotti • Castel S. Felice (S. Felice di Narco) • S. Martino Agelli • Tassinare
