Nestling between Macerata and the coast, it preserves its original layout: its well-preserved walls retain the earliest four doorways and the roads feature the ancient stone paving. Montelupone, where the Orange flag flies, also belongs to the association of The most beautiful villages in Italy. The central Piazza del Comune is overshadowed by the tall tower of the Palazzo del Podestà with its striking battlements. Next to it is the nineteenth-century town hall, with its neo-classical portico, housing the historical Theatre Nicola Degli Angeli. Not far for the centre, near the river Potenza, a must-see attraction is the Benedictine abbey of San Firmano. Montelupone boasts a long-standing agricultural tradition; the most typical farm produce is the artichoke. Sagra del carciofo, the festival centred around the local artichoke, take places in early May.
