Piazza del Comune, 1 - Offagna (AN)
392 1302383
A few miles  from Ancona and Mount Conero, Offagna is a typical medieval village dominated by its squared fortress, built in the middle of the fifteenth century on the ruins of an old castle; it is one of the region's most impressive fortresses. The village belongs to the association The most beautiful villages in Italy and boasts the Orange Flag. It still retains the massive keep, that now houses a museum of ancient weapons. The village is pretty small, but full of remarkable tourist attractions: the church of SS. Sacramento in neoclassical style; the Church of Saint Lucia, attested as early as 300; the church of San Tommaso and the  Museum of Natural Sciences Luigi Paolucci, boasting  interesting paleontological, mineralogical, zoological and botanical collections. The typical specialty of the village is "crescia", a kind of flat bread cooked on the grill and served with a variety of herbs.  Rosso Conero is the local outstanding red wine, made in the area.
Offagna is well-known for its Medieval fun and games in July, featuring some form of knightly tournament between the different quarters of the town, a  parade in sparkly medieval costumes and, of course, plenty of enthusiastic eating and drinking to round off the event.
