Pozzo di San Patrizio (circa 1527) - Pope Clement VII escaped the sacking of Rome by fleeing to Orvieto. To ensure fresh drinking water should the town be under siege, he commissioned the building of this well with two encircling stairways that never meet - one for descending and another for ascending to avoid traffic jams. Today, the 200 foot well lit by 72 lanterns is open to tourists for exploration.
