Lapedona (altitude of 263 metres, inhabitans 1159) is a graceful little hill town built in the Medieval Ages, settled just 15 minutes by car from the Adriatic Sea.
First we can visit St. Peter Church (12th century), used as chapel in the graveyard…
Then we arrive to The Abbey of Saints Quiric and Giulitta (12th century).
This Romanesque Church preserves nice frescoes.
Entering the Old Town by the medieval gate called “Porta del Sole” (“Sun Gate”, 14th century), we walk into the Town Hall arcade, that hosts a Roman tombstone, then we reach Leopardi Square.
