You can get to Acquaviva after a while ‘winding roads thinking at every turn if you will manage to find your way back …
Then you will begin to turn around this tiny village surrounded by high walls really suggestive! It’s not suggested to bring the stroller here because once you get inside the walls, you have to continue to climb …! Here is one of the best preserved and romantic castles of the Marches, where, in 1234, Forasteria married Rainaldo of Brunforte and where since 1988, every year, this marriage is to remember thanks to the event called Sponsalia.
The fortress was built around 1300 by the hand of the Acquaviva family, was then much altered in subsequent years until the nineteenth century restoration by Giuseppe Sacconi. The current appearance is very charming and nice, then you will enjoy the view from up there on the tower is unique! The children will find themselves as another era, and the visit is worth the trek! Inside you will also find a museum of ancient weapons, for the most fans of the genre! At this link instead of a fairy tale to tell children about the history of Forasteria and Rainaldo and prepare them for the visit.
