Castel Santa Maria
The fortified nucleus of Castel Santa Maria (539 m.a.s.l.), with considerable historical, environmental and landscape interest, has a circular shape protected by massive perimeter walls and towers and is mentioned in the historical archives since 1212. The Lords sold the entire castle to the Municipality of Matelica in 1263. The urban layout is organised in three concentric circles separated by narrow streets leading to a small square on the top with the stately municipal building, the parish church, and many medieval constructions.
