Explore a beautiful hamlet by the sea

Polverigi is a small fortified village on the hinterland hills. Its heart is the ancient castle, affectionately called "Roccolo" for its circular shape.

Nestled between the rolling hills and valleys of the Conero Riviera inland,Polverigi is one of the small fortified villages of the “Terra dei Castelli” (Land of Castles). Due to a dusty sandy soil, in ancient times this hamlet was called “Polvericci” and was a major destination for hermits due to the peaceful atmosphere that still exists there today. 

The city walls host artistic treasures such as the Roman Gothic “Chiesa del SS Sacremento” which contains artistic masterpieces and complete pictorial cycles.

Walking along a long tree-lined avenue, you will arrive at two majestic neoclassical entrance monuments that lead you inside Villa Nappi, a historic Villa surrounded by a beautiful park with an Italian-style garden. 

Every year in July, Villa Nappi hosts “Festival Inteatro”, an international festival dedicated to contemporary theater. 

Don’t miss the “Festa delle Strega” (Festival of Witches) that takes place in Polverigi every year on the third Saturday of September.
