The little town of Francavilla d’Ete (altitude of 231 metres, inhabitants 981) comes from a Medieval castle, submitted to Fermo from the 14th century. The name “Francavilla” probably means the tax exemptions of the area in the Medieval Ages (“Franca” means free, “villa” means villages).
Here I was with my mother Stefania: she’s a local specialized tour guide too. For a young tour guide like me, the advices of the colleagues are essential!
We visited the Church of St. Peter, that rises next to a nice flower garden.
Then we went to the Church of St. Roch, that hosts a “Worship of Shepherds” by Vincenzo Pagani.
