Marta

The Red Arrow in the upper Tuscia

Marta is a characteristic fishing village in Tuscia, in upper Lazio, overlooking the southern shores of Europe’s largest lake of volcanic origin, Lake Bolsena, some 20 km from the provincial capital Viterbo.
The town is situated on the slopes of Monte Marta where the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Monte rises, from which to gaze over the rooftops of the hamlet, plunging into the blue waters of the lake, protected by the embrace of the Volsini mountains. Nestled between the shores of the lake and cultivated fields, it offers the visitor an environment of great charm and poetry. The caravan of the 1000 Miglia 2022 passed through the medieval village on 17 June 2022, during the third leg. The numerous small squares join the narrow streets and stairways that lead from the Octagonal or Clock Tower to the shores of the lake, in the characteristic Borgo dei Pescatori.
