Weekend in Lazio

The items of this weekend are mainly two: nature and history. Riding in the plain of Rieti, also called  “Valle Santa”, we can admire some of the most important Franciscan shrines such as Fonte Colombo and the Forest. The beauty of nature is  the reason that have led Saint Francis to Rieti.

The plain is fertile and even today, as in past, it is cultivated but, you could know, that it was originally occupied by a huge lake, reclaimed by the Romans.

Today, the protected area of Laghi Lungo e Ripasottile is witness to that ancient water stretch.
