San Ginesio, where the Orange Flag flies, is a delightful small town with a strong medieval stamp and breathtaking views of the mountains; it retains its original medieval plan, surrounded by walls with sentry’s walkways, embrasures and towers. The village belongs to the association The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy and is included in the National Park of the Sibillini Mountains. Its historic centre boasts the splendid Collegiate Church , whose crypt houses delightful early frescoes decorated by Lorenzo Salimbeni; the 13thC Romanesque church of San Francesco and the town's civic museum, housing many works by Marche painters of the 15th and 16th centuries and a modern section collecting contemporary works, musical instruments and holy objects.
The most typical dish in town is "polenta", obtained with a variety of local corn and a sauce made of different types of meat. The most important events taking place in San Ginesio during the year are: the International Folklore Festival "The Balcony of the Sibillini" (July / August) and the historical re-enactment "Medievalia, Palio of San Ginesio and the Battle of the Fornarina" (August).
