CIVITANOVAMARCHE

On the north side of the river Cluentum's mouth (Chienti) rises Civitanova Marches, city with two aspects that has always owned two city centers: the first on the hill, Civitanova alta, founded in the 50 d.C with the name of Cluentis Vicus, the second on the sea founded in VIII the century a.C with the name of Cluana and already known by ancient Greeks as an important adriatic port for their commerical trades.
During the barbaric invasions Cluana was plundered and destroyed by Visigoti while the population took refuge in the Vicus. The following history is common to all the centers of the Marche region and it sees the belongings to the Longobard reign, to the French Empire then and the alternation of the power to the powerful families in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: De Varano, Malatesta, Sforza, Visconti, Cesarini and between these actors like always the Church of Rome.

In Civitanova alta there're several cultural spots along the alleys of the medieval village: the Collegiata di S.Paolo Apostolo, Palazzo Ducale belonged to the Cesarini, the church of the Santissimo Sacramento and Porta Marina (1442) or Sant'Angelo Door with its characteristic cypress on the tower.
We cannot remember the holiday tourist vocation of the part on the sea of Civitanova that offers equipped beach and a more modern face embellished by the presence of some Liberty villas on the promenade.
