Montefano is centered within the ancient walls of whichthe tower of the original access to the village still remain. The center, intersected by many alleys, definitely deserves a walk to admire the typical red brick houses.

We suggest you approach Montefano coming from the countryside, so as to admire these hills opening in wide valleys with sunflowers, wheat fields and vineyards.

This city of art and culture has given birth to Arturo Ghergo, the diva photographer, and hosts a 19th century theater designed by Virginio Tombolini, the director of La Fenice Theatre in Venice.

Two Baroque style churches to be visited in Montefano: the Collegiata of St. Donato, with part of the cross of which the saint was martyred, and St. Philip Church with the convent.

Did you know that: in the alleys you will also find the birthplace of Pope Marcello II.

If you wish to get into thelife of the city, we recommend you join the Palio of the Contradas, that takes place every year in July. You can attend the parades in historical clothes, accompanied by the drums of the Tamburini from Treia, the race of donkeys ridden by the Popes and the game of the Pope’s chair.

During the patron feast day you can taste typical dishes cheered with music and dances walking through many local handicraft stalls and, if you like, participate in the solemn procession of the patron saint.
