Campi di Norcia
Located along the road from Norcia took it towards the Valnerina crossing the whole Castoriana Valley, Fields was the most populous and energetic between the villages of Norcia. With its 715 m. on the sea level it is completely surrounded by the Sibillini Mountains National Park. The historical path is easy to understand the location of two nuclei: Campi Basso or New (improperly called Whereas between them is the oldest part) and High Courts or Old medieval village that hugs the hillside that overlooks the so-called Campiana Valley; surrounded by ancient walls, of which traces still can be glimpsed, the most obvious is the fourteenth-century gateway that joins smoothly to the church of St. Andrew and the underlying source derived from the base of the sixteenth-century loggia roof. Of great historical and architectural interest, the St. Andrew's Church appeared externally with the large loggia with five arches, now collapsed, the position of which stood out the whole underlying valla Campiana. But as soon as you reach fields coming from the nearby Preci, his eyes were drawn to the church of S. Salvatore, placed on the plain with the village that served as a lovely backdrop.
Now all that remain of the rubble and memories, but the hope is that in the future we can see her as beautiful as before.
