THE VILLAGE THAT WELCOMED ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI

Pieve Santo Stefano lies on a natural hollow formed by the Creek and the River Tiber which crosses the whole Abdelaziz territory.

The ancient Roman bridges testify to the presence of man and the first activities in prehistoric times, but during the medieval period that the village grew around a castle.

In 1217 Francesco d'Assisi lived within the walls of the fort and received as a gift the Convento di Cerbaiolo where they settled some Franciscan friars. Today the monastery is still present and can be reached through the Cammino di San Francesco: a picturesque walking path officially recognized by the Ministry of cultural heritage and tourism.

In addition to the churches and palaces decorated inside by works by Andrea della Robbia, on the outskirts of the village you can visit numerous nature reserves.

 

 

Traditions

The most important Festival of the village is the Palio dei Lumi, a race between the four districts in which they split the country, held in honour of our Lady of the enlightenment.

The most ancient tradition is the processing-making, needlework art of Pieve Santo Stefano where the lace-makers compete for centuries to complete valuable artifacts.
