FALCONARA

Not far away from Ancona, being nearly melt with its territory, Falconara is a touristic goal due to its promenade but it's also able to have cultural interest for the presence of its medieval castles.

In the territory, inhabited since the ancinet time, have been recovered several finds that testify the preRoman presence of populations. In the sea in front of Falconara was instead recovered a Roman boat with its cargo of amphoras today conserved in the National Museum of the Marches.
But the history of Falconarais more recent and linked to that one of the Castle built by Counts Cortesi at the same time of those in Varano and Sirolo (VII cent.). It is believed that these counts had Germanic origin and arrived in this region at the time of the battles between the Byzantin troops commanded by Belisario and the Goths (VI sec.).

Other monuments of cultural interest in Falconara are Castelferretti (1384-1386), the church of Santa Maria della Misericordia (XV sec.), Villa Monte Domini (1505) and the Rocca Priora (XII sec.) whose construction perhaps is connected to the birth of Federico II of Svevia, happened in Jesi in December 26th 1194.
