On the North-East border of Franciacorta, the ancient historical village of Ome lies in a basin where Gandovere and Martignago torrents pass, surrounded by woods and cultivated hills.
The wonderful landscape along the route of wine offers interesting visits of historical monuments and relaxing moments at the thermal centre.
The toponym of Ome probably comes from Home or Hometum, a Germanic word meaning “house of stone” referred to a typical habitation of that period.
The village is divided in few contrade, identified with ancient toponyms as Fus, Nas, Ertina, Valle, Martignago, Borbone, Cerezzata,…
In contrada Valle, crossed by an ancient route which connected Franciacorta to Valtrompia, some frescos and medieval architectural elements are still visible.
Also worth walking through the medieval habitations with stone walls, the ancient office of Torcolo and the interesting sixteenth and nineteenth century buildings.
