The Pozzo di San Patrizio (the Well of St Patrick), with its helicoidal staircase and double ramp, is a masterpiece of hydraulic engineering.

Conceived by Antonio da Sangallo in 1527, it's one of the main monuments of Orvieto. Alongside the beauty of its design, it also grants guests an insight into how denizens of the region would have retrieved water in the past. With 496 steps, you won't leave feeling jealous of life in the past.

si tratta di un'attrazione di Orvieto che va assolutamente visitata. Spettacolare meraviglia architettonica. Non adatto a chi deve fare molte scale.

Posto magico, da visitare con calma. La vista è molto bella sia dalla cima del pozzo che nella parte esterna.

È stato molto divertente, assolutamente consigliata anche x bambini e ragazzi, se visiti Orvieto il pozzo di S. Patrizio è d'obbligo.
