Corciano

The village of Corciano is home to an ancient medieval castle enclosed within the walls, with a series of picturesque alleys that branch out in the midst of houses, towers, gardens, churches and bell towers, perfectly preserved in their original appearance.

The inhabited centre is rich in historical testimonies and works of art. The Saint Mary Gate tower, Coragino Square with a beautiful 16th century well, the Town Hall, formerly the 16th century residence of the Della Corgna dukes, the Captain of the People Palace and Priory Palace, the Church of Saint Mary Assunta, which houses the panel of the Assumption by Perugino and the Standard of Benedetto Bonfigli and the St. Francis Museum Church, in Gothic style, with frescoes dating back to the end of the 13th century and the beginning of the 14th century are all worth a visit.

In Corciano it is also possible to visit, inside the town walls and in the 16th century St. Christopher Church, the Pievania Museum and the Museum of the Peasant House located in via Tarragone, in a typical house in the centre.

Outside the walls is the Antiquarium which houses paleontological and prehistoric finds plus numerous testimonies of the Etruscan and Roman ages found in the municipal area.
