Marmore Falls

Marmore Falls

Marmore Falls - the force of nature created by man.

Located in Italy, in the province of Terni, Marmore Falls, or Cascata delle Marmore, is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans. At a total height of 165m, it is the tallest artificial waterfall in the world.

Whether you are an avid hiker, or simply an admirer of beautiful sites, Marmore Falls is the destination for you.

A Brief History

Marmore Falls was built by the Romans in 271 BC. At the time, this area was a wetland. In order to clear the marshes, which were believed to bring many illnesses, the Romans created a canal to clear the area. This canal diverted the water from the wetland over the cliff at Marmore, thus creating the artificial Marmore Falls.

We recommend taking a guided tour at the Falls to learn a more comprehensive view of the history of this magnificent site.
