Montefeltro
The Montefeltro area is a sub-region scattered between Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. It covers an extensive tract of land from the hills of the Central Apennines to the Adriatic Coast.
Valmarecchia
The Comunità Montana Alta Valmarecchia is a local governing body associating the mountain municipalities of Casteldelci, Maiolo, Novafeltria, Pennabilli, San Leo, Sant'Agata Feltria and Talamello.
Geology
San Leo rises on a rhomboidal limestone and sandstone rock of about 480.000 square metres. The highest point is the southeastern portion of the rock, which then progressively lowers on the western side.
Flora
With its spontaneous plants and lush vegetation, the Montefeltro area is one of the richest wildlife habitats.
Fauna
The rich fauna thriving in the nearby natural park Sasso Simone e Simoncello can also be found in the woods of the Montefeltro area. Animals silently roam its trails and paths, its village and town roads. They are scared of human beings and only show themselves to those who respect nature and look at it attentively, eager to penetrate its secrets.
The Bandiera Arancione Award
San Leo was awarded with the Bandiera Arancione (Orange Flag) Award, a recognition of quality by the Italian Touring Club, in 2004.
Montefetro Renaissance Sights
For more than 150 years, art historians have been trying to locate the landscapes that inspired Renaissance painters such as Piero della Francesca, Rafael and Leonardo da Vinci. While most of them decided that those landscapes were merely imaginary, two landscape hunters Rosetta Borchia and Olivia Nesci, came to new conclusions in 2007. By combining their different professional expertise they found those landscapes in real, authentic places hidden away in the hills of Montefeltro, an area scattered in three different regions: Marche, Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. Those crags, those hills, those rivers, had always been there just none could see them. The geographical region of Montefeltro, especially in its inland area, is home to some extremely beautiful landscapes, famous for their specific and unique environmental features. The crests and the chalky crags of the Valmarecchia area, or the gentle hills of the River Metauro valley, inspired the creation of real works of art by Piero della Francesca and other great artists. Nowadays, the area is still a work of art itself, maintaining its ancient features untouched, thanks to the wisdom and the hard work of its inhabitants, who respectfully preserved it. Preserving the outlook and the features of a specific land is one of the key elements when identifying a historic landscape, an "art place". The Montefeltro region features, not only an incredibly stunning landscape, but also, and most importantly, an amazing cultural heritage. Piero, Rafael, Leonardo, Bellini and many others, five centuries ago, blessed this land with wonderful heritage. Today, thanks to these artists, visiting the ancient and glorious Dukedom of Urbino feels like leafing through a rich art history catalogue, a unique and special one gathering and celebrating the most famous Renaissance landscapes.
