Lake Piediluco is one of the main tourist features of
the Terni area; it is immersed in the greenery of the
Umbrian hills with a particularly enchanting background
scenery made up of the Terminillo mountain range whose
snow covered peaks create a really spectacular effect.
The village is huddled in a loop of the lake beneath the
woods from which it takes its name (“Lucus” in Latin
means “holy wood”). On the top of the hill you will find
the remains of the Albornoz fortress, built in XIV
century. The church of Saint Francis in the centre of
the village is also of historical interest.
Every year the Festival of the Waters takes place in
Piediluco to celebrate the summer solstice with a
regatta of traditional boats, fireworks and other events.
Only a few kilometers from Piediluco you can find one of
the most important tourist attractions in Umbria:
Marmore Waterfall; a unique sight that over the years
has provided the creative inspiration for writers, poets
Terni is the main city of this area and it is famous
because of its Patron Saint, Saint Valentine, the
protector of lovers.
