SAN LORENZO IN CAMPO

The historic town centre conserves its original urban structure with its internal alleys, arches and castle walls with towers. In the hightest part stood the fortress, of which little remains today, and under it opens out the characteristic small square of “Padella”, in which there is the Palazzo della Rovere, that hosts the archeological museum of Suasa – Museo Archeologico del Territorio di Suasa. San Lorenzo in Campo is linked to the foundation of the Benedettini monastery and the abbey of the same name (one of the most significant Romanic-Gothic monuments in the Marches), set up between the 7th and 9th centuries. Situated in an elevated position, a few kilometres away from the centre, the two castle towns of San Vito and Montalfoglio still maintain their medieval structure. The town has been awarded the Green flag for agriculture, and is particularly known for its cultivation of hulled wheat, a particular vine which produces the well-known “vernaccia” and the onion of Suasa (a typical product grown exclusively in the area of Castelleone di Suasa and San Lorenzo in Campo). The area produces the vino Pergola D.O.C., and San Lorenzo is renowned for its chestnut spelt which has been included in the category of The Marches Region typical products, and the first products to be given the “De.C.O” label– Country of Origin labelling. For over 50 years the “Sagra del Castagnolo” (the chestnut festival) has been held on  Easter  Monday.
