    11 things not to miss in Novafeltria

    Novafeltria

    Church of San Pietro in Culto
    Documented as early as 950, it was reconstructed in 1929, with a building imitating its shape, on the still visible foundations of the parish church.

    Oratory of Santa Marina
    Situated at the top of steep steps, highlighting how it is almost grafted onto the rocky spur, it is a very slender and unusual Romanesque church.

    Social Theatre
    Built in the 20th century it has Liberty accents witha fastigium with pinnacles on the outside and inside, pillars and columns supporting three circles with stucco ceilings.

    Palazzo dei Conti Segni
    An elegant 17th-century building with a portico and three floors, it was the summer residence of the Segni Counts of Bologna. It now houses the town hall as well as Grand’Italia cafe, a unique venue with original Liberty furnishings.

    Secchiano
    Thanks to its position, villas and manor houses flourished here. Proof can be seen in the many palaces now trapped by the development of the village. The parish church of Santa Maria in Vico still has Roman tombstones and inscriptions found at the site of theformer Roman town hall. In the hilly part are the ruins of Sasso di Vico and Galasso Castles. Behind a curtain of houses is the tiny Piazza di Ca’ Rosello or Ca’ Roselli, with a small chapel in the centre.

    Ponte Santa Maria Maddalena In this area, where the Marecchia river has rocky stretches and deep pools, visitors will find the ruins of two ancient mills. The bridge takes its name from a 16th-century chapel that once stood here.

    Torricella
    This fortified mediaeval village reveals its past starting with the prehistoric sacrificial altar. A little further away, the village of Libiano is worth visiting.

    Perticara
    Thanks to Mounts Perticara, Pincio and Aquilone this village, inhabited as early as the Iron Age, is ideal for excursions, for climbing, on its gruelling rock faces, for hang-gliding and for Rambo-style fun at Skypark adventure park. The area dates from the protohistoric, Etruscan and Roman periods. Now disused, the mine where sulphur was extracted has left an indelible mark on the local community, a fact testified by the nearby village of Miniera and the large mining history museum Sulphur where a wealth of exhibits are housed in an unusual setting.

    Miniera
    An interesting residential district for the mining workforce. Built in the late 19th century, the recreational facilities, store and church remain. It is worth visiting thanks to its evocative force.

    Sartiano
    A castle that offers breathtaking views of the valley. The parish church of San Biagio houses wonderful works of art, including large altar pieces.

    Uffogliano
    Although largely destroyed, the ancient castle can still be entered via a mediaeval road cut out of the rock. The church and rectory are fine examples of rural church architecture.
