Norcia è un comune di 5.000 abitanti della provincia di Perugia. La cittadina, interamente racchiusa dalle sue intatte mura medioevali, è posta ad una distanza di 96 km dal capoluogo umbro, a circa 600 m s.l.m. e al limitare nord dell'altopiano di Santa Scolastica, un pianoro di origine tettonica collocato nel cuore dell'Appennino umbro-marchigiano ed inserito nel comprensorio del Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini.
Norcia is a town and comune in the province of Perugia (Italy) in southeastern Umbria, located in a wide plain abutting the Monti Sibillini, a subrange of the Apennines with some of its highest peaks, near the Sordo River, a small stream that eventually flows into the Nera. The town is thus popularly associated with the Valnerina (the valley of that river).
The area is known for its air and scenery, and is a base for mountaineering and hiking. It is also widely known for hunting, especially of the wild boar, and for sausages and ham made from wild boar and pork, to the point that Norcia has given its name to such products: in Italian, norcineria.

Hi Silvio,
Beautiful light on these houses forming such a lovely village in the valley. Beautiful greenery contrasting with the brown roof tops. An agreeable POV to capture this landscape shot.

Hi Silvio.

We can safely say that this village was built on the flat, thats for sure. Its a nice touch with the sun showing itself racing across the far hillside of trees. We can see a high wall, no doubt for good reason from yester year. Neatly seen and taken, have a good new year.

stv ;o))
