he vast Santo Spirito complex probably came about as a result of the transformation of the old episcopate, parsonage, cathedral, bell tower and Sts James and Mariano Hospital when these were built anew in the upper part of Gubbio at the end of the 12th century.
The old abandoned buildings were transformed into a hospital and church dedicated to the Holy Spirit. The hospital remained the property of the Wool Workers and Merchants Guild. During the times of Federico da Montefeltro, in the 1400’s, the complex housed all of the nuns from the tiny convents which were spread all over the territory.
On October 15, 1468, Sister Francesca was formally invested with the management of the Santo Spirito Monastery by the Bishop and the local authorities. Sister Francesca performed miraculous healings by anointing patients with a liquid she had received from Jerusalem. The story has it that a sacrilegious person damaged an image of the Madonna there and that this miraculous liquid flowed from the wounded image, after which several miracles occurred.
The monastery was expanded in 1495. In 1590 a terrible fire damaged the building. In 1635 there were 82 Augustinian nuns living there. Over the centuries the complex underwent numerous changes.
Today it is the Santo Spirito Convention Centre, a multi-purpose meeting structure in the unique and fascinating mediaeval centre of the city of Gubbio, surrounded by high quality accommodations, professional services and friendly people.

HIGH QUALITY HOSPITALITY IN GUBBIO

Fine dining is also an age old tradition in Gubbio. The local cuisine, genuine and simple, uses mostly products grown or bred in the immediate area: meat from the animals which pasture up in the hills, local game, cheese and cured meats, country mixed green salads, extra virgin olive oil and wines from the fine vineyards on the surrounding hilltops, and mineral water from the Apennines (some of which also have therapeutic qualities).
The typical dishes are those from the local tradition, made the old way: meat cooked over the burning embers of the fireplace, thick tagliatelle, Easter “crescia” cheese bread and baker’s “crescia”, particularly delicious with slices of the local cured meats and with “friccò” (lamb, duck, chicken and rabbit). Not to forget the unmistakeable aroma of the black and white truffles for which the area surrounding Gubbio is famous.
All of these delicious typically “Gubbian” dishes can be found on the menus of the local restaurants, often carved into characteristic caverns and which offer the warm hospitality for which the Umbrian people are known.
