Trails for castle lovers

For lovers of castles, we offer the following places of interest and tourist itineraries.

The castle of Falconara Alta, dating back to the period between the 7th and 12th centuries, after undergoing several restorations, became a country residence. In recent years it has been restored to its original state.
The Castle of Castelferretti, dating back to 1384-1386, was built by Francesco Ferretti. In 1397 he obtained permission to build from Pope Boniface IX. Presided by armed forces, it was a refuge for the surrounding populations during the Anconan struggles.
Villa Monte Domini was built on the hill overlooking Castelferretti by the Ferretti counts, around 1505. It is connected to the town with a beautiful staircase.
