The Bay

A renowned tourist destination, Portonovo Bay is immersed in splendid glimpses of unspoiled nature. Portonovo territory, an integral part of the Conero, a mountain inhabited since prehistoric times, follows its fortunes: Picene, Doric, Roman, Byzantine, Pontifical, French, and finally Italian. A unique trace of the monastic life that distinguished this area in the Middle Ages, with hermits seeking silence and solitude, is the charming little church of St. Mary, an 11th-century Romanesque masterpiece.

The Napoleonic Fort

Historical background
Along its beach, an ancient landing and predation point for Turkish ships, significant historical evidence is encountered: the Watchtower erected in the 1700s to defend against pirates, and our Napoleonic Fort, a former military bastion that became the well-known 4-star hotel and restaurant in the late 1960s. Jewel of the Mount Conero Regional Park and blue flag, Portonovo stretches out in a still intact natural setting, where the Mediterranean scrubland reaches out to touch the crystal clear water of the sea. The sandy shore, formed by a landslide that broke away from Pian Grande in ancient times, is resplendent with the white pebbles of Conero stone, continuously smoothed by the waves. Two brackish lakes , around which numerous legends orbit, enrich a unique environment that has become a nature reserve in part.
