VF21 - 50 Berceto - Birreria Francigena

You are in one of the oldest parts of Berceto! The square in front of the entrance was once the center of the town and the cobbled street that led you to this is the famous Via Francigena, which from distant Canterbury and all over Europe led pilgrims who wanted indulgence for their sins. It was a long and dangerous journey and the community of Berceto has always given hospitality and refreshment to those who passed by. Outside the town walls, the pilgrims had to face the dangers of the Apennine mountains: snow, cold and above all, brigands! Set at 800 meters above sea level Berceto is counted among the authentic villages of Italy and has always attracted attention for its summers with a perfect climate, fresh air and breathtaking sunsets. Visit the mysterious Romanesque Duomo a stone's throw from here, get lost in the "schivadebit", the narrow streets of the old town, or climb to watch the sunset over the ruins of the Castle Conti Rossi. By the way, everyone knows it now, Berceto is the mountain village closest to the sea, a place you can only fall in love with.
