Portonovo is a district of Poggio village, near Ancona, and it is characterized by an astonishing landscape: the Monte Conero cliffs dive into the crystalline sea water. The alternation of gravel and stony beaches with their very white and rounded pebbles make the scenery amazing.

Portonovo is characterized by spotted monuments, immersed in nature, which testify to the rich history of this landscape: the medieval church of St. Mary of Portonovo, the Clementine Tower and the Napoleonic Fortino.

From the naturalistic point of view the Deep Lake and the Calcagno Lake (or Large Lake), two brackish water ponds due to the mixture of sea water with fresh water, are a worthwhile visit.

In fact, because of the proximity to the sea, the sea water infiltrates beneath the beach and arrives into the lakes, or during storms, it overruns into them. Fresh water, instead, comes from springs (as for the Large Lake) or small temporary streams (such as Ciriesa stream which flows into the Deep Lake).
