Sant'Anatolia di Narco

On the shores of the Nera River, to 328 m. sea level, lies the small town of Sant'Anatolia di Narco. This pleasant village, whose main resource is agriculture, is now mainly a tourist destination during the summer.
The origins of this country are not well documented, but is sure the presence of the Etruscans in pre-Roman times. Of that era are the finds of pottery and decoration.

It is a country of Valdinarco raised on a small river terrace, at the foot of Mount Coscerno framed by hornbeam maple and oak woods of Aleppo pine. The name seems to save him, because it was the center of the first peoples Naharci Sabini, according to others by the river Nar (Black) or according to others, Syrian monks, and finally, by the name of one of the four noble French Narco, which would rule Valnerina and have built Castel San Felice.
