Attractions and places of interest

In addition to its stone houses and flower-filled balconies, Torre di Palme offers many cultural and natural attractions. Below are some of the must-see sights:

  • Church of Santa Maria a Mare: a jewel of medieval art, located in a panoramic position.
  • Torre Merlata and the walls: a testimony to the Swabian rule over Torre di Palme during the second half of the 13th century. A constituted fortification adorned with swallow-tailed Ghibelline battlements.
    It was built to protect the Fermano castle and its inhabitants at the behest of Frederick II of Swabia.
  • Oratory of San Rocco: located opposite the Church of Santa Maria a Mare, it was built by the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament in the 12th century.
  • Bosco del Cugnolo and the Lovers' Cave: a small grove, surrounded by partly abandoned countryside, which presents an easy persecution of just 2 kilometers. A path suitable for everyone except for the Lovers' Cave, for which instead there is a steep slope of about 5 meters to overcome, with the help of a rope.
