Borgo Pace is 450m. above sea level, in the Upper
Metauro Valley, in the beautiful mountain ranges of the Marche
Apennines, that provide a natural protection from the cold north winds,
on the borders of Umbria and Tuscany.
Laid on a flat wedge formed by the confluence of the Meta and Auro
streams that just outside the inhabited areas join together, mixing
their Alpine waters to give life to the famous historical Metauro River.
Borgo Pace, with its mountains and expanses of forests, keeps an entire
natural patrimony intact. Gurgling steams with A type waters, wonderful
sulphur waters, wild boars and people busy at doing old jobs like making
coal, make this town an ideal place for the alternative tourism that
environmentalists and ecologists long for.
Borgo Pace also offers, even to the most demanding tourists, interesting
incentives for historical and artistic reflection, especially with the
excursions to its castles: Lamoli’s Benedictine Abbey, Parchiule Mucci
Within a few kilometres we find Urbino with its Ducal Palace and
Raffaello’s memories, San Sepolcro where Piero della Francesca was born
and Città di Castello with its ancient Roman Tifernum.
Among the typical products of the area the ones of greatest value are
truffles, game, wild boar meat, cheeses from the Apennines pastures, red
potatoes and mushrooms.
We are 30km from Urbino, 70 from Pesaro and not much more from Rimini
and Ancona where there are airports
