Who looks for pure air, incomparable sceneries and vestigia of the past, it has to climb thin to ACQUAVIVA PICENA (mt. 365 s.l.ms.), delicious hilly center to around 8 kms. from
San Benedetto del Tronto. The country, narrow around the Fortitude medioevale that was the fortress of the powerful family of the Dukes of Acquaviva, has preserved his ancient and stately beauty. The time seems to have stopped at the streets, holds and tortuous, of the historical center, and in the ramps and in the erect buttresses to defense of the inhabited area. Every angle, every stone they speak of the past and I am a sign of the collective memory. Different the monuments of sure historical and artistic interest: the church of St. Rocco (sec. XIII), the Gothic Door, the Tower of the clock, the Town Building with his valuable paintings, the Parish church, that of St. Lawrence of the Agostinianis with some pictures of the Riddles and, expanse on a hill, the church of St. Francis that the tradition wants founded really from Francis of Assisi.
