    How to do and how to see during your holidays in San Benedetto del Tronto

Castignano

Castignano

Costruito sul più alto di cinque colli gemelli che sorgono tra l'alta valle del Tesino e la testata del torrente Chifenti, circondato da suggestivi calanchi scoscesi, Castignano appare con il suo profilo inconfondibile: un paese a forma di piramide, sostenuto da un colossale muraglione, dominato da una torre romanica dalla cuspide svettante. Dalla piazza in cima al paese si gode di un magnifico panorama che spazia dal Conero ai Sibillini, al Gran Sasso, alla Maiella, fino al mare.

Il centro storico con le sue chiese romaniche, le case medioevali e rinascimentali le une addossate alle altre in un dedalo di vicoli stretti e tortuosi, si presenta come un museo all'aperto. Quasi fuori dal tempo, conserva intatti i colori ed i sapori del passato, le storie di monache e frati, di soldati e tiranni, di invasori e lotte eroiche, di artisti, di artigiani, ma soprattutto dei Templari. Tra i musei, si segnala il Museo Sistino di Arte Sacra presso la Chiesa di San Pietro Apostolo, in cui sono di particolare interesse l’affascinante e complesso affresco del Giudizio Universale, dipinto nel Quattrocento, con la descrizione della vita nell’Aldilà.

Castignano è un importante centro di produzione di vini tipici marchigiani, prodotti dalle locali cantine private e dalla Cantina Sociale come: il “Rosso Piceno”, il “Falerio dei colli ascolani”, “Templaria”, il “Gramelot”, l’ ”Acquavite di Uva”, l’ “Anice”, il “Mistrà”, “Spumanti” ed altri ancora. Di antiche origini è il tradizionale Carnevale di Castignano, che fa parte, come pochi, del Carnevale Storico del Piceno. Di particolare suggestione è la sfilata dei Moccoli, che mette fine al Carnevale.

Grottammare

Grottammare

Also named the "Adriatic Pearl", Grottammare is situated in the middle of the "Riviera Picena delle Palme", in Marche region. A beach with the finest sand, a transparent sea that gently melts with the sky, the flourishing green of the palms, the white and red colors of oleanders in bloom recall exotic suggestions of remote lands: Grottammare offers all this without going too far. Indeed, Grottammare obtains the European Blue Flag award since 1999 continuously. The presence of remarkable Liberty-style small villas is very interesting ("Liberty" is the term used in Italy to identify the typical "floral" style, better known with its French name "Art Nouveau"). The "Borgo Antico", the historical and most intimate part of Grottammare, is located on the southern side of the hill which slopes down to the coast.

The ancient name "Grotte a mare" dates back to XI-XII century, even though the place it refers to shows previous settlements of "Piceni" people. Several roman relics can be found in St. Martin's Church, e.g. a stone about the restoration of a temple dedicated to goddess "Cupra", probably situated in the same site and built by the Emperor Adrianus formerly. The importance of Grottammare throughout centuries is witnessed by a series of buildings, such as: St. Lucy's Church, commissioned by Pope Sixtus V (an eminent citizen of this town); cardinal Azzolino's villa, built in XVII century and some other elegant XVIII century buildings (the Clock Tower, the "Arancio" theatre, several noble mansions).

Acquaviva

Acquaviva

A village with a beautiful countryside, little churches in the fields, wonderful alleys and an amazing medieval fortress, which is the historical emblem and the most scenographic element of the village. Acquaviva is particularly committed to welcome tourists - the Orange Flag award witnesses it - proposing its historical and artistic beauties, together with hospitality facilities and important summer events.

The medieval fortress, true symbol of the village, was built between the end of XIII and the beginning of XIV century as stronghold for Acquaviva duke's family. Among the monuments in the old town centre there are many churches, but a special notice goes to the Gothic Gate, the Clock Tower and the Municipal Building with its fresco paintings. The lovely old town centre is rich of artisanal traditions concerning the use of straw and the creation of "pagliarole", typical hand-made straw baskets. In the old town centre you can visit St. Roch's, St. Nicholas', St. Lawrence's, St. Joseph's and Virgin Mary of Mercy churches.

Gastronomic specialities are deeply rooted in Acquaviva. "Pesche dolci" (rounded short crust pastries filled with chocolate cream and alchermes drops) are very appreciated. Another speciality is "Lu Frecantò", a particular vegetable dish with a very secret recipe.

Monteprandone

Monteprandone

A medieval village with a living hamlet called Centobuchi. Its history is related to St. James of the Marches, to whom is dedicated an imposing sanctuary. In Monteprandone history is everywhere, in its ancient buildings and in everything concerning St. James. He was born there in 1393 and devoted himself to the cultural growth and development of his village and region. In the old town centre you can notice parts of castle walls: the XV century gate called "Borgo a Monte" with its tower and some XVI century great towers.

The imposing Municipal Building was finished in 1882 and keeps a collection of 64 codes belonging to St. James. St. Nicholas' new collegiate church, designed in neoclassical style by the architect Pietro Maggi in 1808, keeps a wooden crucifix from XIII century. St. James' oratory, rebuilt in the last century, is traditionally considered as the saint's native home.

The village, a close step from San Benedetto del Tronto, offers a charming panorama and in the central square you can have dinner or just a snack in three different panoramic restaurants. Another important element is the vineyard farming on the hills managed by "Saladini Pilastri" winers, the producers of the famous "Rosso Piceno Superiore".

Offida

Offida

Traditions and peculiar characteristics in this village are equally inimitable. You can find the precious bobbin lace from Offida, still very important today for the popular image and the traditional life of the village, together with the familiar sound of the moving wooden spindles and the "merlettaie" working on beautiful pieces of art. Moreover, wine and food are unique and extremely simple at the same time: the famous "funghetti di Offida", original anise-flavoured sweets worthwhile tasting; a filled pizza bread called "chichiripieno" and the famous "mistrà ", a special anise-flavoured spirit.

The village pride is certainly the bobbin lace, an ancient art with secret techniques passed down from generation to generation. You can buy lace works of different sizes and qualities at the "Cooperativa artigiana merlettaie".

The geographical shape of this area, mainly hilly, allows the production of excellent "doc" and "dop" wines. That's the reason why the small village is extremely popular on a national basis and has gained the name of "città del vino".

Ripatransone

Ripatransone

Ripatransone has several museums and collections gathered in a museum centre: it includes museums, the Historical Archive, a well-provided library, the Civic Archeological Museum. Moreover, you will find "Palazzo Bonomi" collections, i.e. the Art Gallery (works by Crivelli, Fazzini, etc.), the gipsoteque "Uno Gera", Risorgimento Museum and the Ethnographic Museum with works from all over the world.

The centre town has a medieval urban structure, with buildings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods; you will also notice XVIII-XIX century noble mansions, which can be easily seen in "Corso Vittorio Emanuele", the main street going through the village from south to north. In the most popular part of the village there are several little streets and alleys: the narrowest recorded alley in Italy (43 cm) is among them.

The flagship of the village is the winehouse "Bottega del Vino" (situated in Piazza XX Settembre) with its initiatives, representing the heart of the cultural centre in Ripatransone. You can taste and buy "doc" wines and traditional products from Ripatransone and other villages there.
