Acquapendente (Lazio)

Acquapendente is a town in the province of Viterbo, in Lazio. Acquapendente is a centre for the agricultural production of vegetables and wine, and has a tradition of pottery craftsmanship. Certainly deserve a visit the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, inside which there is housed a stone is stained with blood coming precisely from the tomb of Christ, the City Museum, the Museum of the Flower and the castle of Torre Alfina. The most important event is the Festa dei Pugnaloni, celebrated the third Sunday of May. It is one of the most ancient folkloristic celebrations of Tuscia, and originally it was also called "the midday festival".
