Gradara, Marche Region, is the most beautiful italian village of 2018

Among the twenty villages of Borgo dei Borghi 2018 Contest, made by the transmission Alle Falde del Kilimangiaro of Rai 3, the winner is Gradara, a medieval village in the province of Pesaro-Urbino, whose history is closely linked to the vicissitudes of its castle where, according to legend, Paolo Malatesta and Francesca da Polenta died, killed for jealousy by his brother Paul, Gianciotto Malatesta.Gradara - Borgo dei Borghi 2018

Located in the hinterland of the Marche and riviera romagnola, not far from the sea and with a nice hilly landscape - extreme offshoot of the Apennines - the village is famous for its historic Malatesta Fortress, which together with its fortified village and its surrounding Walls are a characteristic example of medieval architecture, fruit of a careful restoration implemented at the beginning of the XX century.

During the Easter special episode, broadcasted Sunday, the villages were presented one by one.
