A small but charming village nestling among the hills going back to ancient times. The historic centre, commonly called the castello (castle), is protected by a high medieval wall still perfectly preserved. The town has been awarded the green flag for agriculture, and always pays particular attention to the re-discovery of traditional tastes and ingredients. Barchi is a member of the Associazione Città del Vino (association of wine cities). Since ancient times it has produced exquisite wines including the renowned Bianchello del Metauro DOC. Historically Barchi is also known for its terracotta productions, and the Museo degli Orci e Orciai e della Banda Grossi (museum of earthenware pots and potters and the Grossi brigands) contains objects made at the lathe and coated with the typical aubergine purple and burnt earth colours and produced in accordance with ancient processes used by the terracotta potters.
