Murogrosso is the perfect starting point for day trips thanks to its strategic location whether in the search of wellness and cusine, such as thermal waters and truffles, or sightseeing to major cities such as Orvieto, Assisi and even Florence or Rome.
Murogrosso (literally: big wall) is the popular name of an ancient masonry structure, including a bridge, that allowed the old Roman route Via Cassia to cross the River Chiani. The Murogrosso, which tradition assigns to Emperor Nero (37-68 a.C.), is thought to be part of a larger hydraulic work, built by the Romans to avoid flooding risk in the downstream areas. The bridge has been demolished in 1937, in a period of poor attention to the preservation of historic buildings. Masonry remains are still visible in the wood.
