Porto Recanti Adriatic Coast Italy

The Conero Mountain, with its famous park, is the background of Porto Recanati five miles of beach.

The city, founded in 184 BC by the Romans, was a maritime colony called Potentia, but the story of the current old town dates back to 1299, when were built the castle and the harbor between the mouths of the rivers Potenza and Aspio, by order of Frederick II. In the sixteenth century Potentia becomes Porto Giulio, in honor of Pope Julius II. Later it changes name in Porto Recanati and achieves its independence only in 1893.

Porto Recanati today ... Now the center of the village is bordered by a beautiful coastline where the colors of the fishermen houses give a truly unique effect. Porto Recanati is a village of fishermen where traditions and folklore come out during its neighborhood markets, events and popular festivals. Art lovers can admire the Art Gallery Moroni and the court of the Swabian Castle with its wonderful Arena dedicated to the famous tenor Beniamino Gigli. In this Arena you often assist to the most important cultural art events of the town. Obviously, many are the beauty dating back to the ancient Romans.
