Visit Cortona

The Organika restaurant is located in Cortona, one of the most loved Tuscan villages by tourists from all over the world. The city is located on a hill almost 500 meters above sea level. From here you can enjoy a spectacular vista of the Valdichiana.

Its historical and cultural position is enviable. An ancient Etruscan town first, it was then conquered by the Romans and later by the Goths. It was first to become a free municipality in the 12th century, a period in which it reached its peak.

The center of Cortona is well worth a visit. From the central Piazza della Repubblica to Palazzo Casali, current seat of the MAEC Etruscan Museum, where the famous Etruscan chandelier, dating back to the 5th century BC, is also exhibited. Not to be missed is the Diocesan Museum which houses the Annunciation by Beato Angelico and other works by important Tuscan artists, including Luca Signorelli, a native of Cortona. St. Francis of Assisi was also a visitor and resident of the area.

The numerous and monumental churches of the Cortona area, the Franciscan spirituality, the harmonious and mystical landscape combine to make Cortona an ideal destination for a tourist in search of spiritual rejuvenation and places of meditation.
