  • I state that the ancient village of Corchiano, which stands on a rock placed in the midst of gorges, is very cute, almost entirely closed to traffic (also for the presence of different streets so narrow that cars don't pass us), we did not encounter any car, even parked. Actually, we didn't meet either people, while many cats, and this is a common problem of many towns of small towns that are empty to search for the best accommodations in modern homes. How to be beautiful once with small squares and alleys packed with children and elderly people sitting in the doorway of the House. Despite this absence of life, many doors with Realty sign and several homes under renovation, the walk in this village is relaxing and allows you to enjoy beautiful views over ravines, in alleys and quiet squares: piazza Garibaldi, placed at the end of the cliff is like an outdoor seating area. The village begins with the remains of the fortress and beside there is the fountain Farnese (too bad there's no water). The ravines extending below the Crag (there are several steps that take you down), but actually continues eastward, toward the new part of the country and allow for different routes. Surely to do is the ring of the cliff; recommend you start from the Town Hall square and take the road heading towards the building of elementary schools and then ends with a locked gate with a rope loop; Open the gate and close it behind you (not to let out the animals that live in the canyons) and then follow the path down to the Valley with a staircase (during descent you will encounter a strange building with an enormous time); Once in the Valley, before continuing to the left, go right for a small stretch, because here the Rio Fratta offers the best of itself among vegetation, boulders and waterfalls. Retracing your steps follow the trail to the left, along the Rio on vs/dx and the cliff to the vs/sx. Continuing you will meet other waterfalls and caves at the base of the cliff where they find shelter several donkeys that roam freely. Always conform to the cliff, over the route you will find several possible routes of ascent towards the country. The sight of houses that keep the rock upwards is impressive, especially from parts of the climb Sperella (notice the nice garden place at its base). After the circumnavigation of the cliff you will find the turnoff to the path leading to the Church of Madonna delle Grazie; going straight you arrive instead at the teatro Fescennine verses and then exit, near the fountain. Another interesting area of the canyons is what allows you to traverse through some old Etruscan cut. To get to this area, you should go to the Church of Sant'Egidio, located in the eastern outskirts of the new area of the country (turning left from via Roma after the monument of the fallen). Come to church you have to take the path running alongside left and that introduces you to the Etruscan known as cut sliced s. Egidio. The cut is inspiring, but is disturbed by 2 elements: the numerous cavities (not sure if originating in ancient Etruscan or later) are all barred from metal doors because you used as storerooms (though many seem abandoned) and the bottom of the cut is was cemented. The road descends rapidly towards a small grassy plain known as the garden of Elderberries (it is here that the Nativity scene is set up each year). The plain is dominated by Rio Fratta, which produces yet another waterfall, and the ancient Roman bridge barette. There are 3 routes: one that runs along the cliff, on the left of the bridge, and that leads you inside an old irrigation canal (now dry): awesome when the channel winds among the tall walls of the cliff; finished the Canal the path descends towards the Rio Fratta and continues towards Corchiano to rejoin the route under the cliff of the borgo vecchio and described before (us though, the finished Canal, returned back); for the other 2 routes you have to cross the bridge: so going left towards la tagliata of Cannara (here interesting is the great Etruscan inscription left by the one who has probably built or designed the work: Larth Vel Arnies world; the inscription is easily discoverable because protected by a canopy), going right along the Rio Fratta for quite a stretch until you come to the beautiful church of the Madonna del Soccorso (which, in small, resembles the basilica della Quercia in Viterbo), near which include ancient graves, unfortunately disturbed by intrusive metalworks support. The trail is very easy but, especially if you do it in winter, wear your hiking boots. As others have noted there is a lot of garbage but this is caused by rampant incivility of our times (that claim if in school do not teach even more civic education) and by the proximity of the town and the ease of the paths. Do you think that under a picnic table, near the Roman bridge, there was a bag of chips and a bottle of soda, when at 5 meters away there is a big empty basket. Nor can one expect, especially in these lean times, that the city should clean up the ravines every day as it does with the streets of the town. In these cases, as rude there will always be, your only recourse is to organize volunteer cleanup days, how do you sometimes to clean up the beaches. The route around the cliff what disturbed me most was not the ordinary garbage but widespread donkey droppings, which are everywhere.

  • The old part of the village should be taken in hand and restored to its former glory. The houses around the narrow streets with canteens on several floors are fantastic. Corchiano appears less lively and risk ending up a bit marginalized

  • From Nice and easy hiking in canyons below Corchiano the path of the river Fratta: length approx 8.5 Km, difference in altitude of about 150 metres, 3 hours going quietly admiring the landscape through Etruscan and ancient bridges cut. Very interesting, highly recommended.
