Inland a few kilometres from the romagnola riviera is the village of Montefiore Conca, which presents two very important points of references that are worth a visit. Firstly, the fortress started around 1340 by Guastafamiglia Malatesta and later completed by his successors. It is definitely the country's main monument, it was also mentioned by Ariosto in Orlando Furioso and served as the background to two paintings by Giovanni Bellini.
Then there is the parish church, dedicated to St Paul, inside which is a Crucifix on wood, dating back to the 14th-century Rimini school. Also worth visiting is the hospital church which, although small, contains a fresco cycle that has been attributed to Bernardino Dolci and dates back to 1485.
In the surrounding area, you can go on some pleasant walks on Mount Auro and Faggeto, which supply the area with chestnuts and to which a festival is dedicated every year. Another important and well-attended event is Rocca di Luna in July, with three entire nights animated by shows and tastings, under the white star of the sky.
