In the heart of the Nera Valley, in the south-west of Umbria, among small villages nestling there, you can find also the town of Cascia.

Here, the valleys crossed by the Nera River and its tributaries meet with the Monti Sibillini National Park, the rock massif that is part of the Umbria-Marche Apennines.

Here, you can taste typical local products, from fish to cold cuts and cheeses, as well as honey and dishes made with saffron or truffles, from spelt with lentils up to the legume that has become a Slow Food favourite: the roveja (field pea) of Civita di Cascia.
