Unlike the other Umbrian
towns, which are all built uphill, Foligno is completely flat
so a walk around the old quarter
and its outstanding historical and art gems is really easy-going.
Sightseeing in Foligno
Parco dei CANAPÉ
Set between Porta Todi and Porta Romana gates, Parco dei Canapé park can be both the starting point and a spot for relaxing on your stroll in the centre.
Piazza San Domenico
Leaving Parco dei Canapé park and heading to the centre you first reach Piazza San Domenico square, where you can visit the Church of San Domenico and Santa Maria Infraportas.
The itinerary continues with Piazza della Repubblica square, which boasts one of the most beautiful views of Foligno: the architectural complex including the Duomo, Palazzo Comunale and Palazzo Trinci.
Centro storico di Foligno
Piazza Garibaldi, with the statue dedicated to him, marks the end of your tour of Foligno's historical centre. In this square you can admire the Collegiate Church of San Salvatore and the Church of Sant'Agostino.
Calamita CosmicaNot far away, it is worth visiting the former Chiesa della Santissima Trinità in Annunziata church, which treasures one of the most controversial works of art of the twentieth century, namely the "Calamita Cosmica" (Cosmic Magnet) by Gino De Dominicis.
Food & Wine in Foligno reflect flavours from the hinterland, featuring mushrooms, beans and truffles, accompanied, of course, by good wine and, naturally,
by Umbrian extra virgin olive oil.
