Altidona, Le Marche: the best place to live for your health

Not feeling great? Your street, suburb or town may be affecting your health - and you can do something about it.

For those keen to move, here a town to consider for a range of common health conditions.

Healthy sea breeze mixes here with fresh breath of wind arriving from the hills.
It wraps the Tower and sneaks past the medieval entrance to the beautiful walls. Then it sweetly disperses into the streets of the small town.
It plays and whirls over the pavements of the main square, watched over by the facade of the 18th c St Mary and San Ciriaco's Church. (A valuable 14th century polyptych of Venetian art and a Virgin with Child, two Saints and the Donator, painted in oil and attributed to Vincenzo Pagani, are preserved in this church.) At last, with delicate tenderness, it slightly touches the Virgin of Mercy, a wooden sculpture representing the art of the Marches from the 16th century, kept in the church having the same name.

What to see:

  • The walls
  • Medieval watchtower of Belvedere
  • Churches of Santa Maria and San Ciriaco
  • Villa Montana and Roman cistern, location of the now disappeared medieval castle
  • Parish church, with a painting by Vincenzo Pagani
