About the village

The village of Gradara is located in the Marche Region. Located in the hinterland between Marche and the Riviera romagnola, not far from the sea and with a nice hilly landscape - extreme offshoot of the Apennines. It is especially known for its historic Malatesta Fortress, which together with its fortified village and its walls represent a characteristic example of medieval architecture, fruit of a careful restoration implemented at the beginning of the XX century.

The ancient history of Gradara is closely linked to the vicissitudes of its castle, subject over the centuries to the domain of families Malatesta, Sforza, Della Rovere and Moscow. According to legend, it found the death Paolo Malatesta and Francesca da Polenta, killed for jealousy by his brother Paul, Gianciotto Malatesta.

The borgo, perfectly preserved in its interior is a jewel of which the inhabitants take care with the pride and awareness to be privileged to live in this little corner of paradise. Flowered balconies, scented pergolas and green corners are the path that leads the visitor to the second wall that surrounds the fortress.
