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.
Ciaramicola, a lemon spice cake, covered with merengue and topped with sprinkles, is a classic Easter cake from the Perugia province of Umbria. It is customary for a woman to give one to her lover or fiancé on Easter morning as a symbol of her affection.
