Montefalco is best known for its Sagrantino wine, which is one of the most appreciated wines of Umbria. The grapes from which the wine is made are autochthonous grapes. For this reason Montefalco and its surroundigns are called Terra del Sagrantino. Also the olive oil produced in Montefalco is of very high quality.
Because of the fantastic view one enjoys in all directions from Montefalco on the surrounding vineyards and olive groves it is properly called “La Terrazza sull’Umbria” (the terrace of Umbria). One should not neglect the historic and artistic heritage of this hamlet which is included among the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” (the most beautiful medieval hamlets of Italy). It has several worth-seeing churches and monuments, all lying within the city walls dated from the 13th century, of which we mention here only the Chiesa di San Francesco, seat of the Museo Civico, and the Chiesa di S. Agostino, which dominates the Borgo with its gothic façade. In the Museo Civico one can admire works of art of local artists and sculptures and archeological findings from various epochs.
