Senigallia, city of life
Senigaglia is an ideal tourist destination: a lively city in all seasons of the year, it is a place for relaxation and enjoyment every day. Choose our hotel as the base for your visit!
The Roman heritage and the renaissance period influenced the actual layout of the historic city centre . Roman relics can be admired in the archaeological area while Renaissance architecture can be found in Piazza del Duca. And it is right in this extraordinary part of the city centre that the influence of the Duchy of Urbino can be seen, in the imposing Rocca Roveresca, the Palazzo del Duca and the Palazzetto Baviera.
A short distance away, the Portici Ercolani and the Foro Annonario illustrate the urban development of Senigaglia from the second half of the 18th century through to the 1930s. Senigaglia is also the city of Mario Giacomelli, one of the greatest masters of photography of the 20th century. At Musinf (Museum of Modern Art) – Museo d’Arte moderna, dell’Informazione e della Fotografia, some of his most famous works are exhibited.
And always, the Rotonda in the sea, a symbol for visitors to the city of Senigaglia since 1933, when it was an atmospheric meeting place for the local elite during the bathing season. Restored to its original splendour in July 2006, with its original form of a shell, it is a magical gathering point offering incomparable views over land and sea. From our Hotel in Senigaglia there are two other interesting places that are easy to reach:
Museo dei Bronzi Dorati (Ormolu Museum)
The museum houses the works of the sculptural group known as “ Ormolu works from Cartoceto of Pergola”, one of the very few great groups of equestrian sculptures from ancient Rome and that we are proud to have. For more information: www.bronzidorati.com
Rocca Roveresca (Roveresca Fortress)
The Rocca Roveresca of Mondavio was built between 1482 and 1492, under instruction by Giovanni Della Rovere, a gentleman of Senigaglia, of the Vicarage of Mondavio and son-in-law of Federico di Montefeltro. The project was created and managed by the noted local architect, Francesco Di Giorgio Martini, who was the principal architect for designing defensive structures during the reign of the Montefeltro family in the Duchy of Urbino, and this fortress is unanimously considered an absolute masterpiece of military architecture from the Renaissance period.
