The Purgatory Beans are grown mainly in Gradoli, a small town in Viterbo area, near Lake Bolsena.

The curious name derives from an ancient tradition of the 17th century and still in use today.

In Gradoli, on the Ash Wednesday, a huge lunch for around 2.000 people is organized.

They all eat purgatory beans, rice soup, lake and sea fish and an apple.

Tradition tells that those who sit at the tables, bring from home cuttlery, bread, and wine.

Since the 17th century, this event is organized by the Brotherhood of Purgatory - later called Opera Pia for the Repose of the Souls in Purgatory - and aims to fund social activities and assistance of the Brotherhood.


In the unspoilt fields of the Apennines, at over 1000 meters of altitude, love and dedication to the earth make the BIO legumes and the cereals of Alta Val Nerina grow.
