San Gemini
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
San Gemini is a comune (municipality) of c. 4,500 inhabitants in the province of Terni in the Italian region Umbria, located about 60 km south of Perugia and about 10 km northwest of Terni.
San Gemini borders the municipalities of Montecastrilli, Narni and Terni.
The town is a well-preserved medieval burgh with two lines of walls, built over the remains of a small Roman center along the old Via Flaminia. It is especially known for its mineral waters.
The twelfth-century duomo dedicated to the commune's patron, the locally venerated Saint Gemine, whose relics were recovered in 1775, was rebuilt in 1817. Brother Gemine was a monk of Syrian origins who died in 815.[2] The burial urn and original stone are conserved in the sacristy; the saint has been reburied under the high altar. The saint's day is 9 October.
