Montefalco

Montefalco is a town and common in the central part of the Italian province of Perugia (Umbria). The town has been actively settled since the times of the Umbri. It has been under the successive domination of the RomansLombards, being called Coccorone in the Middle Ages. In 1249 it was sacked by Frederick II, but was soon rebuilt with the modern name. From the 13th century it had been a free common under the domination of local nobles and merchants, but later, as with many other Umbrian locales, the common gave way to government by a Signoria . In 1446 it fell under the rule of the Papal States where it remained until the unification of Italy in 1861. St. Clare of Montefalco, sometimes known as St. Clare of the Cross, was born in Montefalco and died there in 1308.

Montefalco today has several churches, some in the Romanesque, some in the Gothic and some in the Renaissance style. Historically, the most important is the church of San Francesco, which is now the town's museum, and, given its collection of art and artifacts, one of the most important museums in Umbria. The 13th century Palazzo Comunale ("Town Hall") has a mullioned window from the original edifice and a 15th-century portal. Also notable are the gates in the walls, including Porta Sant'AgostinoPorta Camiano and Porta Federico II.
