Name That Location:
Hint: In this village (located approximately 60 miles north of Rome) you will find St. Patrick’s well, seen here. The well was built in the 1500s and it’s unusual construction allowed donkeys to descend to the water and return to the surface without turning around. The town is dramatically positioned on a hilltop of volcanic rock. It was a major center in the Etruscan era and some of its underground caves used during that period can be toured. The village’s duomo dates from 1290 and includes its own Pieta. The town’s location between Rome and Florence makes historians confident that Michelangelo visited the church here and probably drew inspiration from the cathedral for his work at the Vatican. Today, you can ride a funicular from the train station to the village. Can you name this charming Italian town?
~Yesterday’s location was Salzburg, Austria. Congratulations to some of our usual suspects, Lisa Maliga, Sharon K. Connell, Catherine Conn, K. Nichols, & Amy Reade.~
