Gubbio was the religious capital of the ancient Umbrians, as attested by a linguistic document on bronze of extraordinary importance. The city is one of those places where man has been able to know how to enhance nature; it is the city of stone with a heart that beats for its patron saint (St. Ubaldo) to whom it pays homage with the crazy Corsa dei Ceri. An unmissable spectacle, as well as the bell ringers climbing on the turret of the Palazzo dei Consoli.
Despite being founded in the Middle Ages, Gubbio lives fully through the Renaissance with the construction and decoration of the Ducal Palace located in front of the austere Duomo and a ceramic production with a thousand reflections requested by the European courts.
Its alleyways bear the names of the many manifacturing activities of the Middle Ages and the carefully restored houses retain the “the dead’s man door” a curious appellation that does not correspond to reality. To enjoy a privileged view of the city and its surroundings, go up where no elevator will ever arrive, to the loggia of the Palazzo dei Consoli (Palace of the Consuls), at the height of the swallows' flight.
