Castello della Pieve in Le Marche

Castello della Pieve is the tiniest of villages with little or no population. Only a few kilometers from the small town of Mercatello sul Metauro in Northern Le Marche, Castello della Pieve is a place of historic importance. It is here that Corso Donati and Carlo di Valois decreed the exile of Dante Alighieri in October 4, 1301

The hamlet has an imposing tower from the 12th century which stands in the middle. This dark stoned hamlet has a restaurant “Il Girone dei Golosi” that was closed when I visited (Jan 2018).

Castello della Pieve could be an important place in the summer, especially with the view of the valley but in the winter, this village seemed dead and eerie. It seems most of the population from this village has shifted to Mercatello.

Wouldn’t you fancy a walk in this hamlet related to Dante Alighieri??

      Truly but quite dead if you are looking for a Bar or a place to eat.

    It is always nice to read you😊 I am stuck in Rome for some months, it would have been nice to meet you! There are Italians that do not appreciate this country like you do! 😊
