They followed the rule of the Malatesta, Sforza and Della Rovere.

A sinuous coastline, full of small beaches and the promontory of Gabicce Monte overlooking the sea, are the natural features of the landscape, enhanced by the presence of an excellent hotel services. Nature lovers will not be disappointed for sure, they will find a little paradise, where the Colle San Bartolo, protected by the homonymous Regional Park, offers a number of routes for simple walks, both to grapple with the trek.
