Churches · Nightlife · Landmarks
Fara in Sabina, also spelled Fara Sabina, is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rieti in the Italian region Lazio, located about 40km northeast of Rome and about 25km southwest of Rieti.HistoryThe area was already inhabited in prehistoric times, as attested by several archaeological findings from the mid-Palaeolithic and the late Bronze Ages.Between the 9th and the 6th centuries BC, a settlement of the Sabines, identified with the city of Cures, existed here, continuing into Roman Empire times. Remains from it include the baths, a small theatre and terraces for agriculture.The origins of the modern town date however to Lombard times (late 6th century AD), as it has been supposed from the presence of the Lombard word fara ("family clan") in the name. A castle is known from 1006, and from 1050 Fara was a possession of the Abbey of Farfa; later it was a fief of the Orsini.During World War II, the POW camp P.G. 54 was located at adjacent Passo Corese.GeographyThe municipality borders with Castelnuovo di Farfa, Montelibretti, Montopoli di Sabina, Nerola and Toffia.
