San Marco is a fraction of the town of Norcia (Perugia).
The country lies at an altitude of 1,125 m above sea level on a hill overlooking the plain on one side of St. Scholastica and, second, the course of the Via Salaria. According to the census of 2001, Istat, residents are 18 (sammarcani).
The first type of settlement recorded in the area dates from the Iron Age, when the first settlers built a fort, a settlement that is defensive, very primitive, partly by exploiting the terrain. Later, in the Middle Ages, the Lombards built there a curtis, who then ended up falling under the jurisdiction of the Duchy of Spoleto. The village church, however, depended on the Abbey of Sant'Eutizio in Castoriana val. Among the residents of San Marco assursero to important positions, let's remember the consuls John Gennaro and Luca Bucciarelli (1437), Antonio Pietropaolo (1525), Terence Costanzo (1614), Alessandro Gian Benedetto (1621). The present castle was built between the late thirteenth and early fourteenth century.
The wounds inflicted by the earthquake on the night of 19 September 1979 are still visible, symbolically represented never recovered from the house where three people were killed, but San Marco di Norcia, 1100 meters above sea level, one of the twenty five villages of the town's largest Valnerina, redeeming and still maintains his dignity and strength of community.

Beautiful landscape with lovely framing and composition. The group of houses makes a perfect focal point amidst the surrounding greenery. The colours and sharpness are superb.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

proprio un pugno di case, mi sembrano ben tenute.
Bella quella parte di mura con l'arco ben visibile.
Un altro luogo con una lunga e gloriosa storia, quasi dimenticato.

I like the surrounding around the village. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the buildings of the village. The colors of the buildings are contrasting well with the colors of the vegetation. Have a nice day.

The whitewashed walls of the village sit nicely amidst the verdant landscape. The downwards point of view works very well indeed. The image is agreeably lit and has pleasing natural tones. Very good sharpness.

Fine view of San Marco, a survivor of centuries of history and humans, perched on the mountainside and surrounded by forests.
Thanks for sharing,
