MONTEFANO

Montefano is located not faraway from Loreto and from Recanati between the valleys of the torrents Fiumicello and Menocchia.

The village rose on the ruins of the Rroman city of Veragra destroyed by the Visigoth of Alarico in 400 AD together with Helvia Recina and Urbisaglia. The fugitive inhabitants went towards Monte Fano and founded the present village.

In the XI century the village was subjugated to the city of Osimo that imposed to them taxes and used it like defensive element in fact date back to this period the fortifications of Montefano.
The dominion of Osimo ended only in 1489 thanks to Pope Innocenzo VIII that granted the municipal independence. It remained then for a long time under the infuence of the Papal State until the moment of the unification of Italy (1860).

The monuments of historical and artistic interest of Montefano are the baroque Collegiata di San Donato (XII-XIII then reconstructed in the XVI cent.), the churches of Saint Mary (XVI cent.) and Saint Filippo Benizi, the Municipal Palace that includes the municipal Theatre “La rondinella” (XVIII cent.).
Along its medieval walls is possible to admire a quadrangular tower from where it can be enjoyed a panoramic view.
