Nocera Umbra (Umbria)

Nocera Umbra is a little medieval town of the middle Italy, in the province of Perugia, 15 kilometers north of Foligno, at an altitude of 520 m above sea-level. Its buildings of major artistic value are without doubt the Cathedral and the church of St. Francis. The latter was built between the 14th and 15th centuries and is now the seat of the city's Pinacoteque, and contains, other than the splendid frescoes by Matteo of Gualdo, paintings by the Umbrian and Tuscan schools. In the Cathedral, which dates back to the 11th century and was reconstructed in the 15th century, the Romanic portal at the left-hand side and the maiolica pavement of the sacristy are noteworthy.

What others are saying about Umbria

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.

Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for where to find an Italian/English speaking caretaker for a property we're buying in Umbria? 

@joncoh asks:

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.
