Speaking of Cortona
Among the sites of particular cultural interest in Cortona are the MAEC (Museum of the Accademia Etrusca and the city of Cortona), which houses artifacts and paintings from various periods, the Museo Diocesano, with its celebrated “Annunciation" by Fra Angelico and the beautiful paintings of Luca Signorelli and his school. There are numerous churches, noble palaces and typical Medieval streets offering breathtaking views.
Dominating the summit of the hill is the Sanctuary of Santa Margherita, which preserves the uncorrupted relics of the saint, and the Girifalco Fortress, build by Cosimo De’Medici. The Hermitage of Le Celle, founded by St. Francis of Assisi in 1211 is a short distance away.
