Baschi (Umbria)

Baschi is a splendid little medieval town in the Province of Terni, in the Italian region Umbria. Sights include the 16th-century church San Nicolò, the sanctuary of Santa Maria della Pasqua Rella and the Town Hall, which houses the Antiquarium, a permanent exhibition and educational space, featuring a display of artifacts from the flourishing pottery and terracotta workshops found during the excavation of the Scoppieto archeological site. Baschi hosts several annual events such as La Sagra del Porchetto which is usually in August where the typical dishes can be enjoyed made from the region's pigs.
