Agugliano stands on top of the hill in the Ancona hinterland. It is a small town that can be explored walking and breathing an air of ancient history. The Castle and two Churches – Church of the Holy Sacrament and Church of St. Mary in Nazareth – emerge in the heart of the town and deserve a visit.
Unfortunately today only the walls and three towers of the Castle remain visible. The municipality of Agugliano includes 4 villages: Castel d’Emilio, Il Molino, La Chiusa and Borgo Ruffini.
Did you know that: the medieval magistrate Baldo d’Agugliano, mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy (Paradise. Canto XV) was born in Agugliano.
