The medieval district is located high in the town on the small Giove mountain, which also has more than 100 caves. It is a beautiful town with a vibrant historic centre with very well-kept houses and palaces.
The city is more or less divided into two, one part from the middle ages and part dating from the 17th Century. You can explore both parts on foot and discover many historic traces.
Every year in July, a great festival is held which completely transforms the town in many colours. There are many street performances and entertainment of various types. Santarcangelo festival started in the year 1971 and is an international festival which aims to promote theatre and dance.
