It is located at an altitude of 463 meters above sea level, on a hill between woods and countryside.rnPorchiano is mentioned in some sources as "Castrum fortiani", a fortress located on the Tiber Valley. Initially the subject of a dispute between the city of Amelia, Todi and Alviano, in 1317 went to Amelia, after being attacked and occupied several times by the nearby castles. In 1497 he was endowed with a statute, and thus enjoyed a certain independence.
