Gualdo Tadino

Gualdo Tadino, PG 06023 Italia
+ Google Map http://tadino.it/

The foundation of the original village is attributable to an ancient Umbrian community. In the time of the Ancient Rome, Tadinum went from being a simple prefecture to a “Municipium”. It became a free city in 1237 under the protection of Federico II and was surrounded by walls and equipped with the mighty Rocca Flea. In the rich architectural heritage of Gualdo Tadino, there is also the 13th-century Cathedral of St. Benedict, with a gothic-romanesque facade, and the Church of St. Francis (1315), with ogival-shaped portal and a 13th-century large painted cross. Every year, on the last Sunday of September, Gualdo Tadino celebrates the Games of Gates (Giochi delle Porte), a historical reenactment characterized by the challenge between the four city gates.
