The Medieval village of Cetona
The typical village of Cetona rises inside the remains of the fifteenth-century ring of walls. It is characterized by the typical Medieval features that are visible both in the buildings characterized by their red colors and by their stone-made roads.
Very interesting are the religious buildings that save the features of their ancient building, like the Saint Michael Archangel Church that saves fourteenth-century works by the Umbrian school and the thirteenth-century building of the Collegiate Church that rises on the top of a large staircase and saves fine fifteenth-century frescoes, like "Our Lady's Assumption" painted by Pinturicchio (1454-1513).
By wandering through the streets of the historical centre it is possible to admire an ancient cylindric tower and a fine travertine-made fountain.
Remarkable is the nineteenth-century Municipal Palace, today seat of the Civic Museum of the Prehistory of the Cetona mountain, whose inside it is possible to admire several historical finds came to light in the area during the first half of the XIX-th and testifying the human presence in the area of Cetona from the Palaeolithic Age up to the Age of Bronze.
