History and Tourism

The history of this center, in the southern slope of Tuscia, comes from far away, probably from sec.aC VIII, when they gathered in one pagus the surrounding villages, already active in the Iron Age. The period of greatest expansion dates back to the Etruscans who made Blera one of the most important cities of southern Etruria.


In ancient times it was called Phlera, in the Roman period and in the Middle Ages became Blera which is the current name since 1952. The country is located in one of the most rugged southern Etruria, an authentic wild west characterized by patches, hills, valleys used for grazing where do long gallops during which it is unlikely to come across ancient Etruscan burial cave from the golden color of the tuff. The town looks like a town-fortress between the two streams Biedano and Rio Channel that cross under the bridge Etruscan - Roman, survived two thousand years of history, which stands out against the landscape.
