GRADARA CASTLE - ADRIATIC COAST
Gradara fortress is situated on a hill marking the limit between Marches and Romagna Regions. At feudal times in Italy names as prestigious as the Malatesta, the Sforza, the Della Rovere, were connected to this historical monument. Walking through these castle rooms, one can imagine what it was like to live the nobles families with a mixture of pleasant or dull moments. The construction started in the middle of the 12 th century. When two brothers, Pietro and Ridolpho Grifo took over the region from Pesaro muncipality. They first built a strong and severe tower to establish their right of ownership. From the end of the XII century to the midlle of the XIII century the castle was occupied at times by thieves and at other times by Lords until Giovanni Malatesta da Verrucchio took it over by force with the help of the Pope.
