Cagli is probably the most beautiful and historically, the most important of the cities in the mountainous area that once belonged to the Principality of Urbino.
During the ages several noble families have lived in Cagli and many of the old palaces and churches (18 in total) and the town’s theatre have been renovated over recent years.
Cagli's landmark is undoubtedly the big tower Torrione Martiniano - the only surviving remnant of the town's fortress from 1460. The town hall dominates the central square and is worth a visit. Architecturally it is a remarkable mixture of a church built in Romanesque style and a medieval palace. Inside the building you can see the 'Sala del Consiglio General' and experience impressive, colourful frescoes from the mid 1500-century. We also recommend that you visit the Archaeological Museum, the church of S. Francesco and the city's charming theatre from the late 1700's.

For the local population the highlight of the year falls on the 2nd Sunday in August when the town holds its fiesta. Then it is time to give the old national costumes an airing. So if you happen to be in Marche on this particular Sunday a visit to the town is thoroughly recommended.
