“A Ofagna si nun ce porti nun se magna.” Popular proverb
Taking a walk through Offagna means taking a dip into the past, into history, into fairy tales and imagination, feeling part of an era that vibrates in imagined memories. Offagna stands tall in a strategic position on a 306 metres high cliff of tuff, the Mount Sentino, which is one of the highest points of the Osimo-Camerano-Gallignano-Polverigi quadrilateral. Its medieval castle predominates amidst a breathtaking panoramic position.
Visiting the town means discovering…
Museum Of The Fortress, remarkable example of military architecture of the period between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Museum of Natural Sciences “L. Paolucci”. The halls host part of the finds from the collections of the Ancona distinguished naturalist student (L. Paolucci 1849-1935). Paolucci graduated in Veterinary Sciences and was a brilliant teacher and then Principal of the Royal Technical College in Ancona, where, after some years of direction of the Cabinet of Sciences, he established the Marche Regional Museum of Natural History.
Museum of The Liberation of Ancona, one of the places of memories. Using the Latin etymology we can say it is a monument because the word “moneo” (to warn, admonish) combines with the word “memento” (to remember).
