Monte San Pietrangeli (altitude of 241 metres, inhabitants 2568) was a medieval castle. At the beginning of 16th century pope Paul III put the town under the direct jurisdiction of the Holy See.
The monastery of St. Peter was founded in 1080 and it was given to the Franciscans in 1270. It preserves the cloister with colonnade. The church hosts the polyptych Madonna with Child and Saints by Giuliano Presutti da Fano.
In the via Roma we find the Gothic Civic Tower (14th century),
the Town Hall with the inner curvilinear monumental staircase,
and the Monument to the local artist Luigi Fontana (1928).
Outside the town walls, we discover the Church of St. Lawrence and Blaise by Giuseppe Valadier (1859). It’s one of the best Neoclassical churches in the country. The facade shows six cylindrical columns.
