The territory, which reaches an altitude of 1,415 meters nell'Alpe of Catenary (M. Castle), is crossed by numerous rivers flowing into the creek Singerna, who joins the Tiber in the lake Montedoglio. Extensive forests of beech, chestnut and oak trees make up still unspoilt scenery and make the air particularly healthy.
The chestnut has always been called "the bread tree", it occupies a prominent place in the history and civilization of Caprese. Chestnuts and mushrooms, along with truffles, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries, are the genuine fruits of this land, vital to its economy.
