Monte Maggio

Monte Maggio is the twin hill of Bertinoro. It is covered with thick vegetation and is thus particularly suitable for beautiful and relaxing walks. Walk up via Cappuccini to the top of the hill.

Once there, go along a dirt track bordered by bay hedges and majestic cypresses, which runs along the remains of the ancient walls of a former Capuchin Convent. Since many oak trees and juniper bushes grow on the hillside below, spring and autumn are certainly the most suitable periods of the year to walk up there to pick up digestive and aromatic herbs.

The ancient Convent, which was damaged by bombing during World War II, has been restored and today it houses a well-known restaurant.

The well of the convent, which is famous for its internal spiral ladder overlooking cells located along its walls, is still intact but can only be visited with speleological guides. Today, the ancient kitchen garden of the convent is an ideal place to rest and relax on sunny days and enjoy a breathtaking view.
