CATTOLICA & SURRONDINGS

Cattolica
Defined Queen of Adriatic sea and for three times has deserved the “blue flag” recognition. The sea in Cattolica shines of an intense blue and it’s waters are clear also thanks to the powerful purifiers scattered all around the coast. The air you can breathe on the beach is pure and healthy, rich of iodine, optimal for those who need to take a break from the heavy atmosphere of the metropolis.Cattolica’s beach is protected by a breakwater and the seabed is pretty low.These elements makes of Cattolica the perfect place to go on vacation for families with children.

Rimini - Sigismondo Castle
Intended not only as a military garrison but also as a residential and representation place for the lord of the town, the castle was inhabited from 1446, while the bastion of the outer walls are from a posterior period, successive from the death of Sigismondo. In his present state the castle has lost his original shape, represented in the commemorative medal by Matteo de’ Pasti and in Piero della Francesca’s fresco in Malatestian Temple.

San Marino
The independence of this republic has very ancient origins, so much that San Marino is considered to be the most ancient republic of all times. The tradition tells us that it was founded in 3 September 301 d.C., when Saint Marino has established a small Cristian community at the top of Titano’s mountain. The small capital contains a huge historic, cultural and architectonic patrimony.

The fortress exists from the roman epoch; today it is represented by a construction of the Renaissance made by the architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini from Siena to whom, in his turn, was entrusted by Federico de Montefeltro to adapt the fortress for new kind of arms. Today many visitors are attracted by the place of imprisonment and death of Cagliostro.

FORTRESS OF MONTEGRIDOLFO
This fortress of antique origin was going through a severe confrontation between Malatesta and Montefeltro families as far as it had an exceptionally strategic position.

FORTRESS MALATESTA SANTARCANGELO
Historical references to this fortress appeared at the end of the XIX century and they send us back to Federico Barbarossa, to the confrontation between Guelfi and Ghibellini, to the tragedy of Paolo and Francesca and to the long domination of Malatesta family (1248 – 1471). Actually, the fortress was reconstructed due to one of the members of Malatesta family – Sigismund Pandolfo (man of letters, warrior, architect). The work was finished in 1447 and the complex looks in the same way nowadays.

Montefiore Conca – Malatestian fortress
This fortress dominates the middle valley of the Conca and twenty, and is a part of the most strong and coherent chain of Malatestian defense system. It is probably the most characteristic of the malatestian castles for his round shape and the elevation of the fortress, unusual, almost surreal, smooth and faceted, compact and crystalline; it’s no surprise that Giovanni Bellini was struck by his beauty, who reproduced it in the background of at least two of his paintings.

Urbino
During roman domination Urbino was a very important strategic city which is confirmed by indirection in the stories about the battles on Metauro in 207 B.C. between romans and Asdrubal. Nevertheless there are no mentions about the city in the first centuries of the Middle Ages. But it is known that Urbino was considered an important city as far as it was attacked by Goths, Byzantines and Lombards. The city was conquered by the Byzantine Belisarius in 538 A.D.
