*** Why Guardea?***
Guardea is an Italian municipality of 1. 836 inhabitants in the province of Terni, between the territory of Orvieto and the United States. The village is also located on the border with the Lazio territory of the province of Viterbo. The peculiarity of the name is due to a few doubts about the singular morphology of the territory, which was an efficient guarding place, especially - from the old hills of the country, today called "Old Guardea" - on the valley of Teverina. The name "Guardea" could be derived from the German wald (forest) or French garde (surveillance site). The country is currently at the foot of two hills: Guardea Vecchia and Poggio, where the medieval castle stands.
In the municipality is also part of the valley of the calanchi, extending to the tuscia viterbese in the municipality of Bagnoregio.
In the territory of Madonna del Porto (municipality of Guardea) there is the entrance of the natural oasis Lake Alviano and much of the lake itself, which also extends to the municipalities of Alviano, and Civitella d'Agliano.
