Has been awarded the title of one of “The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy” and an Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club.
The sight of its fortress, an imposing Malatesta building overlooking the Conca river valley, is quite literally breathtaking and the village, with its mediaeval layout, is equally fascinating and interesting. It is surrounded by woodland and gently rolling countryside, with the coast in the background and the sea on the horizon.
Montefiore is a destination worth visiting at any time of year: in winter when the peaks surrounding it are white and there are living nativity scenes within its 14th-century walls, in spring when the countryside is in bloom and Easter rites take visitors back in time, in summer when the squares and courtyards of the fortress are filled with the sound of music and singing and host a variety of art festivals and shows and in autumn when the intoxicating fragrances and flavours of the earth, including chestnuts and extra-virgin olive oil, abound.
"The place characterizes the name: Florum Mount, namely Monte dei Fiori"
