About Montone - Umbria Museums
Ideal setting between monasteries and museums,
Where getting lost in indescribable landscapes
and in a surprising silence.
Montone, a precious gem nestled in the hillside of Umbria.
Montone, an authentic small village
This small mediaeval village, from the top of the hill on which it is defensively positioned overlooking the valley below, has remained unchanged for centuries.
Montone is one of the castles in the feudal age defensive system that were built on the hills between two tributaries of the Tiber river, the Carpina and the Lana rivers.
The Civic Museum of San Francesco
