Our travel today is in the Marche Region and I'll bring you to one of the most beautiful villages in Italy!
 
Corinaldo is a small village near Ancona near Senigallia.

Here, in the Marche, you can admire the precious wine production of the famous Verdicchio .

Corinaldo, this small village, has a charateristic well maintained city walls dating back to the fourteenth century.

The walls of Corinaldo are recognized as the most intact and impressive fortified and long (912 meters uninterrupted) of the Marche and the best preserved in all of central Italy.

 The walls constitutes a monument of the village of Corinaldo and one of the most visited historical-architectural Marche

Corinaldo was totally rebuilt in 1367, with the current city walls; details of strengthening elements are attributed to the genius of the famous military architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini of Siena.

 

  b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_9406-640x480.jpgCorinaldo is also known for a legend: it is said that a farmer, going up the steep ascent leading from the village to the ancient historical center, dropped a lot of corn flour into the well to which he tried to drink to fight the scorching summer heat.

 From the well began to go out, miraculously, so much polenta that it could feed the Corinaldesi besieged (the reference is to the historical siege of 1517)!

I hope you will enjoy to visit this magic village in your holiday.

Leisure me: this is my tourism!
