San Giovanni in Marignano
4 km from Cattolica is San Giovanni in Marignano, one of the legacies of the Malatesta family, whose historic center still contains the walls and the elegant building. Famous is the Festival of the Witches that takes place every year in the village.
Montegridolfo is one of the best preserved villages, its urban layout is still medieval and the walls and the castle are intact; the entire historic center still seems to live in that era.
Famous for the famous party of the “Palio del Daino”, the village of Mondaino draws its origins from the Roman era and then take shape with the construction of the castle under the Malatesta, still visible, resting on a shoe wall.
