Il borgo di Gualdo sorge lungo il tratto di via Flaminia che da millenni porta da Otricoli – antica Ocriculum – a Narni – antica Narnia.

Gualdo: un antico posto di guardia lungo la via Flaminia.

Important was the strategic position of this fotified town that was the Roman vallum (=wall or border), or the Longobard watha (=guard post) from which it derives its name.

The first written documents which talk about the Castrum Gualli come from the Statutes issued under Gregory XI between 1371 and 1378. 

From the Reformations dating 1533 we know that, to the men of this castel and the ones of the castle of Guadamello, was given the task of enforcing municipal orders against the near castel of Orte.

What to see.

There are several things to see inside the walls of the former castle:

  • the entrance door, which is preserved with its round arch, is the only intact part of the medieval defence walls;
  • the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, patrons of Gualdo, preserves a table of the fourteenth century with the Madonna that protects the inhabitants of the village;

A short distance from the central square, in the direction of the provincial road, stands the charming Church of San Carlo in Gothic style now private.

Hidden on a hill rises the Church of San Biagio, probably built over an older Roman building.
