Back on the Provincial Road No. 55, proceed towards Lubriano, which is a tapering settlement and looks like "wrapped" around the only road that crosses it from both sides. The historical centre is laid on a volcanic edge limited by a high cliff facing north upon a deep tuff ravine, while towards east and south the village overlooks the unique panorama of Civita di Bagnoregio and the "valley of gullies".
The piazza S.Giovanni Battista faces the gullies as well and is bounded by the Monaldeschi Renaissance palace on the opposite side, together with the parish church dedicated to St. Procolo, Lubriano's patron saint. Not far stands a square tower totally made of tuff bricks, which is the only remain of the XIII century city walls.
