The stones of Cortona and the medieval villages of Umbria and Tuscany tell the traditions, the folklore and the history of a unique land: in 1211, the Saint of Peace, San Francesco, visited the city of Cortona, moved to Le Celle,  enchanting and spiritual place, where he spent the time necessary to build a small and humble conventual structure. Thus Cortona places you among the most important Franciscan destinations together with La Verna and Assisi.
The proximity to many of the most beautiful and significant destinations in Tuscany, such as Arezzo, home of Guido Monaco, inventor of the Tetragramma and musical notes, the Val d 'Orcia with its breathtaking views, makes Cortona a unique and unmissable destination.
