About Pietralunga

Symbol of PietralungaPietralunga is a city in the Province of Perugia, located in the north-east of the Tiber Valley. The city lies 566 meters above sea level along the Umbria-Marche Apennines, between the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic seas. The origin of the city dates back to the Umbrian people, who gave the old town the name of Tufi. It seems, however, that around the fifth century B. C. the Gauls (name by which the Romans called the Celts) took over the land, so that the dialect pietralunghese was added to the Gallo-Italic. During Roman times, the city was known with the name of Forum Julii Concupiensium. Over the centuries, the territory expanded greatly, and the name of the city was changed to Pratalonga (which later became the current Pietralunga).

  • The Sanctuary of Madonna dei Rimedi - In the early XVI century, for a miracle, the Virgin appeared to some girls and some nuns of the local Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria del Ponte. The site then became a center of Marian devotion so intense that, in the XVII century, it was enlarged and part of it was rebuilt over the existing Romanesque church where, according to tradition, in 1224, St. Francis had spent the night when coming back from Verna, after receiving the stigmata. The Church is located to the south, along the provincial road to Umbertide, approximately a kilometer away from Pietralunga. Each year, on the second Sunday of September, the town celebrates the feast of Madonna dei Rimedi
  • The Pieve de' Saddi - Early Christian Church, it was built over an earlier Roman temple to preserve the remains of St. Crescenziano martyr
