GRADARA: THEMED ITINERARIES FOR GROUPS - VOLENDO VIAGGI

Gradara is an ancient medieval village that extends from the Montefeltro hills to the Adriatic coast.The walls surrounding the centre have passages which allow visitors, especially on summer nights, to enjoy an atmosphere and panorama that are truly enchanting. The Malatestas, who established themselves here around 1260, built the Castle which can still be visited today. The Gradara Castle is a magnificent example of military architecture. Scene in which it had place, according to the legend, the tragic love story between Paolo and Francesca, the fortress recalls to the memory the splendors of the families that have governed it: Malatesta, Sforza and Della Rovere.In the palace Chapel there is a "Madonna and Saints" in glazed terracotta done by Andrea Della Robbia.
The visit to the village and to the Castello Malatestiano are important stages for the knowledge of the regional territory. To be visited beyond the Rocca, the Church of Saint Giovanni with a beautiful wooden crucifix, the Historical Museum, and the Olive Trees Garden. Do not forgot to visit the rounds walkway of the town-walls, from where it's possible to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view.
