The complex is located in the country-side right at the foot of the Cortona hill only miles away from Cortona (5 miles.) , Arezzo  (20 miles), Siena (20 miles), Perugia and Assisi. Within miles are also lake Trasimeno and the ancient towns of Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. Each of these places is an ideal destination for a one day trip.

An encounter with Cortona is an encounter with art, with history and with spirituality. Getting to know this timeless city is a real rediscovery of our past. Cortona offers testimony to its history as well as an enchanting view of the landscape enclosed by Lake Trasimeno and the Appenines.

"Cortona has a picturesque aspect, quite a bit longer than wide, turned toward the midday sun. Her district is fertile and is abundant with all that is necessary to human life. It is Cortona marked by the Meridian-Antartic star sign, feminine, in motion, pungent, earthy, frigid and dry and under the noble reign of..."
After nearly four hundred years that description is still valid. Cortona has changed very little in its urban make up, it remains there- framed in the center of a triangle which has for its corners three of the cities of Central Italy which are most rich in history and art works, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia.

The tombes discovered in the campaign below are numerous. Anyway the most famous is the Tanella di Pitagora, the Melone di Camucia and the Hard one. The reports conserved in the museum of the Etruscan Academy in palazzo Casali , between which the famous Etruscan chandelier of the V century b.C.. On the top of the hill the fortress dominates. Under it the reconstructed Sanctuary of Margherita Saint, from which they degrade the steep ways to the stones of the city degrades.

Of great importance is the civil architecture with many of the medioevali and renaissances palaces. The numerous churches are splendid, from that Roman-gotic of S. Agostino and S. Francesco, to the Renaissance jewels of Santa Maria delle grazie( Calcinaio )and of Santa Maria Nova, to the silent church of S. Niccolò. Cortona was native land of the painters Luca Signorelli and Pietro Berrettini, famous here like Pietro from Cortona. Gino Severini was born in Cortona, too. Exceptional is the pictorial patrimony of this city of art conserved in the Diocesano museum between which stands the "Annunciazione del Beato Angelico".
