Thanks to its spectacular position - on rocky spurs just a short distance from the sea of which there are magnificent views from here - and its wonderful buildings that rise up on them and are clearly visible from the plains, the town attracts numerous visitors, fascinated and enchanted by its beauty.

It is one of the capitals of the Malatesta and their prestigious history, based on successful battles and fortunate coalitions, began in its still imposing fortress, built by the family. This is where the Malatesta centenarian, Mastin Vecchio lived; considered one of the family founders he was even mentioned by Dante in his Divine Comedy. Verucchio is traditionally known as the “cradle of the Malatesta”, proof of its close links with the seignory that owned it for over 300 years from the 12th century onwards. These origins were keenly contested by Pennabilli that, as mentioned in the introduction, still claims to be the birthplace of the family.  More info here.
