About Montefalco

Symbol of MontefalcoMontefalco is a city in the province of Perugia. It is situated in a panoramic position, overlooking the plain of the Topino and Clitunno. Because of its favorable position, the city is called the balcony of Umbria. The name Montefalco was given to the city, according to the tradition, by Frederick II of Swabia who, visiting those places in the thirteenth century, found that a large number of falcons was present in the area and decided to change the name of the place from Coccorone (Cors Coronae) to the present one. Reference point of the region for wine production (Montefalco and Montefalco Rosso), the city is the leader of the Sagrantino wine road, a route that goes through all the territories of the famous local DOCG wine.
