In the footsteps of Paolo and Francesca
Gradara, a village with an important history and a strategic position between Marche and Romagna. the castle overlooks the hill, with the sea on the horizon, and witnesses with its magnificence a past still alive in the village, the scene of an eternal love praised over the centuries by the great poet, Dante Alighieri. then you have that village, where you can breathe tradition and authenticity’ in the small shops and historic inns.
Today, in this paradise suspended between past and present, poetry lives again and the atmosphere becomes magical, along the historic streets of the centre, on the panoramic walkways and in the ancient frescoed rooms. so many secret corners where wonder and mystery still intertwine and mingle.
Love, that exempts no one beloved from loving,
seized me with pleasure of this man so strongly,
that, as thou seest, it doth not yet desert me
The village of Gradara is enlivened by numerous events throughout the year: “The Siege of the Castle”, “The Magic Castle”, “Gradara The Wine Passion”, “Gradara d’Amare”, the “Christmas Castle”, as well as important art exhibitions and lively guided tours of the Fortress in the footsteps of the two legendary lovers.
