MOMBAROCCIO

It emerged in medieval times from the union of five castles. Originally it came within the domain of the Church, then passe dover to the Malatesta family and later to the Sforza and Della Rovere families. During the Malatestiano period the castle walls were built, which included the splendid  Porta Maggiore (15th century). In the ancient sacristies and the Church of San Marco there is the Museo d’arte sacra (museum of sacred art), which contains 150 artefacts dating back to between the 16th and 19th centuries. Worth mentioning is the Museo della civiltà contadina (museum of farming) set up in the vaults of the former monastery of Giroliminni friars, which contains a vast collection of objects dating back to the 18th and 20th centuries concerning working and domestic life. The church, cloister and convent of Beato Sante, which are situated within an  oak, holly oak and chestnut wood are regularly visited by pilgrims and devotees who can enjoy the tranquillity of their surroundings.
