Urbisaglia, where the Orange Flag flies, was a large and important town in the Piceno area; it later became a Roman colony. Near to this small town lie the remains of the Roman Urbs Salvia, with the amphitheatre built in the 2nd century AD and the theatre , one of the region's most conspicuous Roman ruins, that still retains earliest decoration. Another interesting attraction is the fourteenth century trapezoid shaped fortress. Not far from the town, a must see attraction is the Abbey of Chiaravalle di Fiastra, with the church in Cistercian style, the Cistercian monastery and the palace owned by the Giustiniani Bandini family. The whole area is a Nature Reserve, an idyllic spot for country rambles covering 1825 hectares of protected land.
