The black Virgin of Loreto

Activity Info




    From Marcelli di Numana, this tour will take us to the discover of one of the most important cultural and artistic attractions of the area: the Sanctuary of Loreto. Inside it houses the “House of the Madonna", where it tells the legend, the Virgin Mary received the Announcement from the Angel of her divine motherhood, by the Holy Spirit. Here we will spend some minutes to take some pictures before returning to ride on the hills of Recanati and Osimo.

    After riding inside the walls and through the old streets of the city of Osimo, we will move to Offagna to visit the Rocca and the center of the ancient medieval village.

    The final part of this fantastic tour to head back to Numana, passes through the vineyards and the hills near the coastline.

    ATTENTION: in case of necessity due to weather reasons, or unforeseen episodes along the route, the guide can make diversions on alternative roads (at its complete discretion) to safely continue and finish the tour.
