Location of Acquasparta in the province of Terni

Acquasparta is located on a hill above the Naia valley , which is formed by the river of the same name. On the opposite side of the valley is the Monti Martiani mountain range . The municipality covers an area of ​​79 km².

The municipality includes the fractions Casigliano, Casteldelmonte, Configni, Firenzuola, Macerino, Portaria, Rosaro and Scoppio.

The neighboring municipalities are Avigliano Umbro , Massa Martana ( PG ), Montecastrilli , Spoleto (PG), Terni and Todi (PG).


The origin of the name Acquasparta is traced back to the Roman toponym Aquas partas (German “divided water” or “between the waters”), but there is no evidence for this. During the Roman Empire , the community was known for its hot mineral springs and, thanks to its location on the Via Flaminia, it was an easy-to-reach resort. The thermal springs still exist today.
