Cascia (Umbria)

Cascia is a town of the Italian province of Perugia, in a rather remote area of the mountainous southeastern corner of Umbria. It is about 21 km from Norcia on the road to Rieti in the Lazio (63 km). Cascia's history is deeply linked to Rita, the Augustinian saint who's born here in 1381. The sanctuary dedicated to St Rita is a well-known destination for pilgrims coming from all over the world. Thousands of people come to Cascia every year hoping to find solace for their sorrows and everyday difficulties in St Rita, the thaumaturge. The Church of St Francesco and the Collegiata of St Maria worth a visit, too. The village also boasts notable example of noble private buildings, like Palazzo Carli and Palazzo Santi (the latter seats the civic museum).

Ciao everyone,

@Cripps 44 asks:

Hi. Does anyone know of an English builder that they could recommend for renovation work on a property in southern Umbria.  Roofing, plumbing, heating etc.

Hi - first time poster! I know there's a few threads on here already about terracotta (cotto) tiles but we're in need of some advice for a specific situation and was hoping someone out there could help us.
