potenza picena

Potenza Picena is a place where the city, the countryside, the hills and the sea combine with ancient and modern history between culture and agriculture in a succession of undulating hills that reach the fine sandy beaches. It stands on a 237 meters hill just a few kilometers from the Adriatic Sea coast where the beach town Porto Potenza Picena is located.

The Municipality, also including the characteristic rural suburbs St. Girio and Montecanepino, has more than 15,000 inhabitants.
