SARNANO

Appreciated touristic locality and thermal center, Sarnano rises on a hill at 539 meters of height and dominates the surrounding panorama in the territory of the Sibillini Park.

The name and the origins seem to derive from the Latin “Sarnus”, of Augustan age. It knew the domination of the Byzantins and the Longobards before returning definitively to Church (VIII cent.) in the sphere of the donation of lands made by the Emperor Charle the Great, Franks' king.
It became free Comune (Municipality) in 1265 acquiring the present urban planning of medieval village surrounded with town-walls.

Sarnano maintains intact its medieval aspect and owns a Castrum structure, that is a city with town-walls that owns its center in the Piazza Alta (High Public square) and descendant structure along the slope of the hill with concentrich streets and very narrow alleys.
The main monuments of Sarnano appears on the Piazza Alta: the Church of S.Maria Assunta (second half of XIII cent.) with the beautiful white carved portal, the Palazzo del Popolo, the Palazzo dei Priori and the Palazzo del Podestà. To be visited in the village also the Church of San Francesco (XIV cent.), the Pinacoteca Comunale (Civic Museum) and the Library.

Sarnano also is known like goal of tourism for winter sports being surrounded from a rich and varied territory that can offer to the visitor some unforgettable excursions: to the Lago di Pilato (Pilato's Lake), to the Gole dell'Infernaccio (Infernaccio's Gorges) and the Cave of Frasassi.
