Natural Park “Gola della Rossa” and the Frasassi Caves
Just an hour away from Marotta, the Natural Park “Gola della Rossa” and the Frasassi Caves in Genga represent an underground universe made out of crystalized columns, stalactites and stalagmites. We suggest you to wear jumpers and cosy shoes, the inner temperature is always 14°C.
Highlight: the Abyss Ancona is so huge that he whole Dome of Milan could fit in.
Urbino and the Ducal Palace
You can’t miss Urbino, UNESCO World Heritage Centre. The Ducal Palace was built in the 15th century and stands in front of Piazza del Rinascinento: this is just one of the many places to visit in this amazing historical town, which is a real open-air museum. Highlight: Piero della Francesca and Raphael are some of the Old Masters in Painting you can find in the National Gallery of the Marche.
We definitely think that our inland is unique. Choosing a village among the others is definitely hard: Mondavio and its castle (Rocca Roveresca), Corinaldo and its walls, the typical mediaeval buildings of Pergola that seem to protect its masterpiece (Bronzi Dorati), whilst the Collegiata in Arcevia is a real treasure chest.
Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto
The tradition, based on devotion and popular belief, ascribed the transportation of the House of Nazareth to an angelic mission. The Sanctuary of Loreto is amazing: the Marble Screen that encases the holy building was designed by Bramante and represents one of the most important sculpture masterpieces of the Renaissance. The venerated Marian image of Our Lady of Loreto (1921) was made by Leopoldo Celani.
