Amelia, formerly known as Ameria, created by Ameroe, is a city of ancient origins: it was certainly among the first Italian centers with the testimony of the cyclopite walls of extraordinary beauty. A border town, first Umbrian and then Roman, Amelia boasts many testimonies of its past: in addition to the city walls, which is the most important monument, we mention the interesting historical center, which covers about 25 hectares, with its stratifications, numerous Renaissance palaces, churches, remains of mosaics and baths.
