After about 6 Km from Città di Castello you arrive at the Trattoria il Sasso where you can buy food and water for your journey.
From here you will start walking uphill until you reach Pieve de ‘ Saddi.
Definitely worth a visit.
The Church there is worth visiting because it was the first Christianization place of the Upper Tiber Valley.
he messenger of the new Christian doctrine was a Roman legionary Crescenziano.
According to the sacred legend he was persecuted and killed during the reign of the Emperor Diocletian and was buried in Pieve de ‘ Saddi.
Over the ruins of a pagan temple a Church was built to house the remains of the martyr, San Crescenziano.
Onother important shrine La Madonna dei Rimedi (Our Lady of remedies), is located along the path that leads from Pietralunga to the next stop Gubbio.
According to the tradition, Saint Francis stayed there during his journeys from Assisi to La Verna.
Now let’s continue.
From Pieve de’ Saddi the path goes alternatively uphill and downhill along cultivated fields and across small valleys.
There are several areas to have a rest and be prepared to face the last uphill stretch that will take you to Pietralunga, a small medieval Umbrian village.
