Ascoli Piceno Fermo

Things to do - general

Ascoli Piceno is the largest city of Southern Marches with a population of about 60,000 people. Its historic center can be easily explored on foot and is built almost entirely of travertine marble, a gray stone extracted from the surrounding mountains.
The Piazza del Popolo is the main city square, entirely paved with travertine, is one of the most beautiful squares in Italy. On the square there is the storical Bar Meletti, the Palazzo del Popolo and the Church of San Francesco. The other main city square is Piazza Arringo, where overlooks the Cathedral where you can admire the painting of the Madonna and Saints by Carlo Crivelli, and the Town Hall with the Art Gallery which houses a collection of minor and great works of minor artists.

The city celebrates its medieval origins with a historical commemoration called La Quintana. Iit is a jousting tournament that takes place every year in the main square of the city on the first Sunday of August. The event includes a procession of about 1,400 people in medieval costume parade through the center of the city. A festival that is worth seeing.
