Known as the “Sibylline Balcony” because of its beautiful views of the peaks of the Sibylline Mountain National Park, San Ginesio is very popular thanks to the town’s attractive structure which is emphasized by the great circular wall (still intact) and grand, monumental architecture. Inside the town, the Teatro Storico, or “Historic Theatre”, is still operating: built in 1866, it bears witness to the community’s taste for social gatherings and cultural experiences. MORE DETAILES
