It lies on top of a hill at the height of 652 metres above sea level between the valleys of the Tennacola and Salino streams. The exceptional panoramic position of the town lets one’s gaze wander from the not far-off Sybilline Mountains (called the blue mountains) to the sharp outline of Monte Conero on the Adriatic coast. The shady avenue which leads to the ancient town centre is bordered with beautiful, century-old horse-chestnuts which protect the tourists in the hot summer days and seem to preserve the silence and the harmony of the place.
Ancient, interesting, historic and gastronomic traditions are still living in the small town of Gualdo whose original features are perfectly preserved thank to the love and devotion of its inhabitants
Macerata , the
provincial center, is only at 36 km
of distance from Gualdo. It offers a
characteristic and suggestive town centre and
all the facilities and services of the
great town without losing its human
qualities. Besides a lot of typical restaurants
and shops there are also interesting museums and
monuments. The Sferisterio spectacular opera
season which takes place in August is
of sure artistic and cultural interest.
