Camerano rises on a hillside ridge on the slopes of Mount Conero in a beautiful position which offers incredibly luminous views typical of Mediterranean areas.
The town dates to mediaeval times and the finds of an ancient Italic civilization, the works of art that abound in the churches and a famous garden of a nobleman’s villa make Camerano a place of sure interest and character for visitors.
Numerous finds dating to the end of the IXth and IIIrd centuries BC have been discovered in numerous tombs on the Site, which was settled since Neolithic times in the IIIrd millennium BC..
The mediaeval activities of the town developed within the castle walls in which churches, convents and homes were built.
The square is the hub of the community and leads to the Church of St. Francis with its magnificent 300 century portal and Baroque interior. The centre of the Church of St. Faustina which was restructured by Carlo Maratta, the famous artist born in Camerano in 1625, houses a painting of the Maratta school and a marble medallion with the portrait of the wife of the painter.
This hillside area offers spas and tourist facilities such as the Aspio Spa resort.
