About Norcia

Symbol of NorciaNorcia is a city in the province of Perugia, situated on a plateau about 600 meters above sea level, inside the Park of Monti Sibillini. Probably the name Norcia must be related to the Etruscan name Northia, which corresponds to the Roman goddess Fortuna. The original city was probably built by the Sabines in the fifth century A. C. After being conquered by the Romans, the city became Nursia Valeria. At the end of the fifth century A.D. St. Benedict was born in Norcia: its most famous citizen, who founded the Western monasticism.
