Situated on a hill with a fascinating view over Misa valley, Ostra belongs to the National Association of Wine Cities, the National Association of Cities of Honey and boasts the Orange Flag. According to tradition, the town was founded by the refugees from the Roman town of Ostra destroyed by the Goti. It is surrounded by medieval walls featuring nine towers. In its red-brick main square stand the neo-classical town hall and the theatre La Vittoria. Not far from the centre a must-see attraction is the eighteenth century Sanctuary of Madonna della Rosa, which houses the miraculous seventeenth century edicola dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The most typical products are: Lacrima di Morro d’Alba, the local red wine, and the extra virgin olive oil obtained from “Raggia” olive, one of Marche’s finest olive variety.
