Relatively populous among the small municipalities of Montefeltro - although not even here do we reach two thousand inhabitants - Carpegna is located on the southern slopes of Monte Carpegna, in an area that is part of the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Interregional Park. In short, the area is excellent for hiking, mountain biking or horse riding, thanks to the many trails available. Climbing to an altiude of 1,204 metres on Sasso Simone, for example, not only offers remarkable views but also lets you reach the remains of a Benedictine abbey and a fortress built by Cosimo de' Medici in the second half of the 16th century.
Palazzo Carpegna stands out in the town, with its façade embellished by architectural elements in grey stone and a beautiful two-flight staircase, built by Cardinal Gaspare Carpegna from 1674. Even more remarkable, a couple of kilometres outside the village along Provincial Road 18, is the Parish Church of San Giovanni Battista, of 14th-century origin.
The local gastronomic pride is Carpegna ham, cured locally for at least thirteen months, protected by a denomination of origin, and appreciated for its delicate and fragrant flavour.
