About Cannara

Symbol of CannaraCannara is a town in the province of Perugia. It's laying by the left bank of the Topino river, near the middle of the Valle Umbra (Umbrian Valley), in a swampy area once known to the Romans as Lacus Umber. Cannara takes its name from cane, an aquatic plant that still exists in the area. The first settlements of the village are dated around 1000 AD. For many centuries it was a well-fortified castle with high walls and towers; it became a town in 1200.

  • Piandarca - It's a place in the town of Cannara where, according to the tradition, St. Francis of Assisi held the famous sermon to the birds. The spot where the miracle took place is marked by a stone, which is located along the ancient road that connected once the two castles of Cannara and Bevagna. It lays in a still untouched area, accessible through a path that begins just outside the village and goes through the fields. Near the stone, along the present road to Bevagna (the SP403), a small shrine in memory of the event was also built in 1926
