The Cascata delle Marmore Waterfalls


Cascata delle Marmore
The Cascata delle Marmore (7 kilometres from Terni along the SS. 209 Valnerina) is in an exceptionally beautiful natural setting. The waterfalls are in fact artificial, created by the Romans.

In 290 BC the consul Curius Dentatus gave orders for the digging of a canal (Cavo Curiano) to drain the stagnant waters of the river Velino to flow over the Marmore cliff and join the river Nera, 165 metres below.
