Against the magnificent scenery of the Ernici mountains, this center is ideal for tourists both for the good air and attractive natural surroundings, and for the delicious local cuisine and great hospitality of its people. Guarcino is famous for its pig breeding, an ancien local tradition which links the ability of the guarcinesi to the benefits of a mountainous climate, allowing the offer of high-quality products such as their typically delicious ham or "prosciutto".
The origins of Guercino date back to the 8th century BC, when it was a settlement with the name of Vercenum of the Ernici, a pre-Roman Italic people, and strategic point in the valley of the Aniene river. Situated at 625 m a.s.l., the town is an excellent point of departure for every type of excursion; one can walk for hours amid century-old woodlands enriched by springs and numerous grottoes that open into the limestone of nearby mountains.
To see: The sanctuary of Sant'Agnello, the monastery of San Luca, a belltower in the form of a sail (the only one in Lazio), the Tomassi palace (the homestead of Pope Bonifacio VIII).
