Marotta

Overview

The town of Mondolfo has a dual soul, which stems from its continuation in the coastal resort of Marotta: two towns in one, two cultures that merge, land and sea that come together and create a unique yet multifaceted identity. This dual soul emerges above all in the cuisine and food and wine traditions: in fact, dishes based on broad bean flour and fish dominate the table, such as Spaghetti alla Mondolfese and garagoj, the shellfish, to which a festival is also dedicated every year in April. But the town is not only cuisine, land and sea: it also has architectural excellences that are certainly worth a visit, such as the Romanesque Church of San Gervasio and the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grotte. Mondolfo, a hamlet and seaside resort of Marotta, represents the town's seafaring heart. Blue Flag, the town of Mondolfo still maintains a lively and heartfelt attachment to the ancient traditions linked to the sea and its seafaring past, which emerge in events and manifestations of great beauty and charm. Among the local festivals that evoke the importance of the sea for this land, not to be missed are the 'Tratta', trawl fishing that is practised in the shallow and sandy seabed, and the Sagra dei Garagoi, held in April, where one can taste the excellent molluscs cooked known as 'pelican's pie' according to tradition by the local fishermen.
