The village of Cesi
If you are in Terni, drive less than ten km from the city center and arrive at CESI (m423 s.l.m.).You will feel like you have drifted away much farther.From the "terrace of the Terni basin", as this village is defined,the horizon broadens and embraces a view that is not everyday for those who are not lucky enough to live in places like this. Lying on the slope of Mount Aeolus, Cesi has a long history because it was both a settlement of the Umbrians and a Roman town and in the Middle Ages it became an important center of the ARNOLFE LANDS. But to the charm of its location and its history is also added that of a legend that has been told since ancient times. According to this, the intense air currents of this area are caused by the action of Aeolus, the god of the winds,who lives in the caves of the mountain of Cesi.
After a visit to the village and its beautiful monuments, go higher. Cesi is in fact the starting point of some itineraries that cross the southern offshoots of MONTI MARTANI. The magnificent views that will open around on their own are worth an excursion. But we will also discover the "signs" left by the populations who settled in these places over time.
