For those who are searching for a “Luxury wedding in Umbria, Italy“, Borgo San Pietro Aquaeoertus is the perfect result. Indeed, there are places in Italy that are truly unique in terms of their charm, history and surroundings. And this is the case of SPAO San Pietro Aquaeortus. A village that has been transformed from a medieval hamlet into one of the best places for a luxury wedding in Umbria, Italy.
The history of the Borgo has its roots in an ancient legend linked to St Peter. The prince of the apostles.
According to the legend, St Peter passed by this place during his second coming to Italy and performed a miracle. He made water gush forth to administer baptism. Hence the term Aquaeortus (water spring).
Around 1000 A.D., a community observing Benedictine rules moved into the area and in the course of time, a monastery was built. The activity of the monastery became fundamental for land reclamation and water works to regulate watercourses. The place remained a fortress of faith for almost seven hundred years, only to be transformed into a proper village inhabited until the 1950s.
Its spirituality, which can still be felt today when crossing the Borgo’s walls, makes San Pietro Aquaeortus a unique place, a wedding venue like few in Italy. Here, stories have not been buried forever. Thanks to the faithful restoration of the buildings, the Borgo continues to delight and amaze wedding couples and their guests.
Today SPAO Borgo San Pietro Aquaeortus is also a municipal house. Civil weddings can be celebrated here, and there are several spaces in the Borgo where newlyweds can say “YES’. From the park to the terrace, from the deconsecrated church to the ancient square. All fascinating places are surrounded by beauty.
SPAO is a “wow effect” wedding location for all those who will appreciate the charm of a Medieval Borgo and its historical areas. Recent works have restored to its original splendour the present Church dating back to the 16th century, built on the ruins of an older medieval church that in turn had risen over the ruins of a very ancient pagan temple.
