Santa Maria di Portonovo

Set in the green of the Mediterranean maquis and lapped by the blue Adriatic Sea, the Church of Santa Maria di Portonovo, built with the Conero spotless stone, is a jewel of Romanesque architecture with features blending the Greek cross with the shapes of the Latin basilica. It reminds us that in 1034 a Monastery was built in this wonderful place.
The Community of Monks extended its influence in a large area beyond the Castles of Poggio, Camerano, Sirolo, and Numana.
