The “Selva di Monte Oro”, a pristine forest in Castelfidardo
The Castelfidardo Selva is the green lung of the village on the hills of Conero
Thanks to its 36 hectares of land, the “Selva” in the “Monte Oro” area is considered “the green lungs” of Castelfidardo and is unique in Europe.
You can admire spectacular flora and fauna along the thirteen paths stretching through the forest or relax in this oasis of peace and tranquility.
Historically, the “Selva” was the setting of the bloody “Battle of Castelfidardo” on the 18th of September 1860 between the armies of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia and the Papal States.
The battle is considered to be the final episode of the Italian Risorgimento.
