Quaint town in Marecchia valley
The small town of Sant’Agata Feltria is quaintly situated in Marecchia valley. The mighty 10th century fortress was converted by Federico da Montefeltro into a noble residence for his daughter Gentile Feltria in the 15th century. To this day, fine wooden ceilings, monumental Renaissance chimneys and a hexagonal chapel with beautiful 16th century frescos attest to the former residence’s elegance. Today the inside of the fortress serves as a museum. Worth seeing as well is Mariani theatre – one of the oldest in all of Italy. It’s completely made of wood and today also accommodates a museum. Sant’Agata Feltria collegiate church dates back to the 10th century. Remarkable inside are the 7th century crypt and the altar piece “Madonna and Child with St. Anthony of Padua” by Il Centino.
