ABOUT CAGLI

Cagli, a town of approximately eight thousand citizens and the birthplace of the painter, Raffaele Senzio, lies in the province of Pesaro e Urbino, within the Italian region of Le Marche.

Although there are remnant examples of the Roman, medieval, gothic and baroque periods (including Palazzo Bonclerici and the Duomo in Cagli's central piazza), nowadays, the predominant architecture of Cagli's centro storico is typical 19th-century, so typical in fact that it regularly attracts university architecture students from around the world.

As in any Italian town of its size, Cagli has a very wide range of restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets and shops from which you can take home and cook la cucina tipica.

There are many annual historic, gastronomic and religious events in and around Cagli that add to the enjoyment of the town. Principally, at Easter there are processions in Cagli and Cantiano and truffle fairs in October and November in Acqualagna and Sant'Angelo in Vado. And, of course, there is the weekly market - every Wednesday. Just outside Cagli one can find the remnants of a bridge, ponte Mallio, Pons Mallium, and the ancient consular road, built by the Romans well over 2,000 years ago. The landscape around Cagli is marvellous just for its natural beauty, with three towering mountains, two wonderfully cool rivers suitable for swimming in summer and stratified evidence of incredible geological activity, for example the nearby Furlo Gorge, over tens of millions of years.
