Osimo

Charm & Mistery

The ancients called it beautiful and secret. Rich in art and history. Don't miss its magical caves.

During your stay in the Conero Riviera, let yourself be fascinated by the mysterious charm of Osimo, an ancient Roman colony nestled in the hills of the Conero Riviera.  

THE ANCIENT COLONY OF AUXIMUM

The mysterious atmosphere of the ancient Roman colony “Auximum” (later renamed Osimo) is reflected in its ruins and hidden treasures. 

We suggest you visit the old Roman walls, “Fonte Magna”, one of the ancient water sources scattered throughout the city and the famous headless statues, the origin of the nickname “senzatesta” (headless) to indicate the Osimo people.

THE LIVELY OLD TOWN AND THE HIDDEN UNDERGROUND

Walking through the city streets from “Piazza Boccolino” square, you can admire majestic noble buildings, the theatre, and many boutiques and cafés.

The lively old town atmosphere contrasts with the quiet of a mysterious underground city, hiding tunnels and secret passages carved in the sandstone. Discover the “Grotte del Cantinone” and “Grotte Fregonara-Gallo” caves under Piazza Dante. 

The enigmatic reliefs carved in the walls make the caves one of the most charming and mysterious places in the city.

A SPIRITUAL HERITAGE

Osimo also has a beautiful spiritual heritage. Around the city you can visit the imposing “Duomo di San Leopardo”, a Romanesque-Gothic cathedral with a 12th century crypt and annexed baptistery. Walking through the streets, you can admire the “San Francesco” church, now dedicated to the patron saint of the city “San Giuseppe da Copertino”. His remains are preserved here and you can  visit the rooms where he lived.

La Festa del Covo, evento tradizionale e religioso, si celebra ogni anno la prima domenica di agosto. Soggetti sacri realizzati con spighe di grano – i covi - vengono portati in processione e offerti in dono alla Madonna. Campocavallo diventa così teatro di eventi musicali e gastronomici.
Sai che... OSIMO
Il sottosuolo di Osimo nasconde una città gemella fatta di gallerie e passaggi scavati nell'arenaria. Un mondo altro ricco di figure scolpite e simboli criptici da decifrare. Quattro i percorsi sotterranei fruibili al pubblico.
