Pievefavera Castle

Pievefavera Castle rises on the highest part of the homonymous medieval hamlet, on a spur of rocks overlooking the Chienti valley. Of Roman origins, the castle had great relevance in the Medieval age: it was first under the Benedictine’s domain and later Da Varano family’s, who obtained its jurisdiction until 1560 and used it for revenge against Tolentino and San Ginesio.

It is a great fortification with an original wall structure, still intact to date, and a clearly visible watch tower. Inside the walls there is a church in baroque style, which was built in the XII century but later underwent several alterations.

The triangular shaped churchyard is the focal centre of the hamlet, the place where all the activities used to take place. The mansion looks like a fortified residence with ample salons and two towers. On the south bank of the lake lies an archaeological site revealing ancient Roman foundations.
