In a landscape of rolling hills and lush green fields, in the heart of the Middle Tiber Valley, Marsciano reveals its dual personality, that of ancient Medieval town and modern industrial center.
In the historic center, a labyrinth of narrow lanes lead to the remains of the Castle and to the Parish Church dedicated to St John the Baptist. Inside the church there is a splendid wooden crucifix and a magnificent fresco of the Madonna and Child attributed to the Perugino School.
A fresco by Pinturicchio is safeguarded within the Palazzo Pietromarchi, a 14th century building which also houses the Dynamic Museum of Brick-making and Terracotta, realised so as to recount the history of the production of the building materials for which the area is famous.
In the fraction of Cerqueto, in the immediate vicinity of Marsciano, we find the beautiful Parish Church of S. Sebastiano. It was here, legend has it, that Perugino painted his very first fresco, depicting the martyrdom of St Sebastian.
