Land of myths the Sibillini Mountains owe their name to the priestess Sibilla, who was able to predict the future and lived in a stone grotto. The Monti Sibillini National Park, is dominated by Mount Vettore (2,476 mt), a mount which name originates from "Iuppiter Victor", a park 70.000 hectares between Umbria and Marche that offers numerous trekking opportunities.
High up above the sea there is Cardeto Park, a large area of about 35 hectares close to the centre of the city; it is the largest Ancona urban park and a very precious green reserve. You will find some spots of historical value such as the Diffused Urban Museum, the Jewish Graveyard, the English Graveyard, the St Paul Bastion belonging to the ‘500 century, the Powder Magazine Castelfidardo, the Cardeto Fort, the Old Lighthouse and the ex-barracks Villarey, actually centre of the university of Trade and Economy. All that deepened into a natural environment of particular interest and extraordinary panoramic spots above the high coast, the cliff and the city.
