Bracciano

Bracciano is a municipality in the metropolitan city of Rome Capital, in the heart of Roman Tuscia and in a dominant position on the lake of the same name. The origins of Bracciano are not entirely clear, but it seems that the first settlement dates back to the 10th century. The Orsini-Odescalchi castle, the main attraction of the village, dominates the town center and all around the alleys of the ancient village wind, one of the most picturesque in Roman Tuscia, characterized by houses built with the local lava stone. From the town you have wonderful views of Lake Bracciano, one of the largest volcanic lakes in Europe and protected by a regional reserve.

Also very fascinating are the Cathedral of Santo Stefano and the Church of Santa Maria Novella, in whose convent the Civic Museum is housed. There are also historic buildings including the Town Hall built between 1619 and 1636.
