Montegranaro, the ancient roman Veregra

We will begin the journey along the roads that wind between a succession of soft hills that characterize the Marche landscape, enjoying the spectacular alternation of colors created by the various crops.

We will reach our unusual destination, Montegranaro, heir of the ancient Roman city Veregra, a village situated between the Valle del Chienti and that of the Tenna, resting on a hill with a splendid panorama that sweeps from the Adriatic to the Sibillini Mountains.

In this itinerary we will discover the historical, artistic and architectural beauties of the medieval village, in a tour between external and internal sites, enriched by anecdotes and stories from the town.

The route will begin in Piazza San Serafino with a visit to the homonymous capuchin church; we will cross the walls of the town from Porta Marina and, along the narrow streets flanked by houses, we will reach the heart of the town in the upper area: we will admire the noble palaces and the town hall, the Torre dell’Annunziata with its mysterious crosses, the ancient romanesque portal of the lost church of the Santissimo Salvatore, the church of San Francesco and its splendid late gothic portal.

We will visit the private chapel of Palazzo Svampa already Church of San Michele Arcangelo (XVII century), the baroque church of San Pietro and the church of SS Filippo e Giacomo.

Continuing towards the southern walls we will see the Porta Romana and Porta Romana water trough.

The itinerary will end with a visit to the Ecclesia di Sant’Ugo, a small church of rare beauty and great historical and artistic value with a cycle of magnificent Romanesque-Gothic frescoes from the 13th-14th centuries.
