The source of Feronia is a source of water of pre -Roman origin found in Narni. It was dedicated to the goddess Feronia who, in the Narni of the time, enjoyed a cult and respect to be venerated, as well as by the Umbrians, but also among the Etruscans, the Volsci and the Sabines. The water of the source, now declared non -drinking and not controlled, was highly appreciated by the necessary for its characteristics of purity and lightness. Features that brought the ancient inhabitants very far from the center of city life thus becoming a destination for pilgrimages in honor of the goddess which, among other virtues, represented eternal spring and the purity of the waters. The original temple, the statue of Feronia and the Sacred Bosco of Ombrosi Elci were destroyed by the first Narnese Christians. As a consequence that place, considered sacred until recently before, was called "Maccla Mortua". The first historical indication of the site occurs in 1100, as can be seen from the writing Liber Geneniagraphus sive cleronomialis Ecclesiae Farfensis, better known by the name of Regestum Farfense written by Gregorio Di Catino in 1128, where the will of a Narnese nobleman, Beraldo is reported of Rolando, who donated all his assets to the abbey of Farfa except for the "Maccla Mortua Quae Vocatur Ferone".
