Ponte S.Maria Maddalena - Sant’Igne (counterclockwise) - San Leo - Tausano - Monte Fotogno - Ponte S.Maria Maddalena

Town parks, fortified walls and the historical centre, a Unesco World Heritage. A town on a human scale, made for movement surrounded by nature and the architectural Renaissance beauties of the Estense family.

Not to be missed:
reaching Piero della Francesca’s Balconies and observing the panorama is a special and exciting experience. As in the ancient noble portraits by this artist, each visitor can plunge into the landscapes of sixteen century paintings.

2 - The St. Igne Convent
The convent is a solitary place , a hidden pearl in the medieval religious architecture of San Leo. The convent stretches over greenery with its light-coloured stone complex, in complete silence. The legend has it that St. Francis got lost in the forest and only thanks to a divine light, perhaps a fire (from here Igne of latin origin) , managed to find his way out. The founding, attributed to the Saint, dates back to the XIII° century and today it is a place of mystical reflection amid the wonders of its architecture.

3 - San Leo
A wonderful art capital, mentioned by Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy, it is the fulcrum of the historical Montefeltro region. Getting lost here is pure pleasure, amid the heart of its quarters, descending into the misteries of the fortress, leaning against its lordly walls, abandoning oneself to the beauty of its churches. These are emblems of Romanesque architecture, the Parish church, is an excellent example of medieval sacred art and dates back to the IX century. The cathedral, among the most important monuments from Romanesque Romagna, is dedicated to St. Leon, patron saint of the diocese, and is placed between the pre-Romanesque parish church and the bell tower. These buildings were part of a single episcopal complex.

4 - Renaissance views
Right amid the peaks and limestone cliffs in Valmarecchia, the masterpieces of some of the greatest artists from Renaissance took shape. “Piero’s balconies” recreate the painted landscapes chosen by Piero della Francesca as backgrounds for his works of art.
