As it suggests its name, Montefiore Conca it’s risen on the valley ploughed by the homonym river of the Montefeltro, in a territory of great beauty between Romagna and Marches.

When it appears to the horizon, in fact, Montefiore Conca is “anticipated” by the imposing Fortress that dominates on the inhabited center. Testimony of the Malatestas’ Dominion, this big castle from the square profile is the symbol of the town of Montefiore. Built around 1350, it remained under the Dominion of the Malatestas for over 100 years before to be under the dominion of Guidi, Borgia, Venetian Republic, of the Prince of Macedonia Constantin Commeno (that here died in 1530), Papal State and Cisalpina Republic.

In this natural place so intact, that also include the protected area of the Onferno Caves, they grow a lot of animals like roes, wild boars and porcupines.
