Portico di Romagna, location of the Municipality’s Town Hall, is a compact village that maintains many elements of the late medieval system. There are various ancient buildings with precious ornaments in pietra serena sandstone; an elegant humpback bridge crosses the Montone, while the surrounding hills are home to some notable towers. Not far away is the small village of Bocconi, with a beautiful fourteenth-century tower and the Brusìa medieval bridge with three arches. San Benedetto in Alpe preserves an evocative housing nucleus huddled around the ancient abbey, and in its church there is a beautiful crypt; the most recent inhabited area is the starting point for the very frequent excursions in the Acquacheta valley.
