San Bartolomeo al Mare
- Restaurants - Typical Products - Services -
San Bartolomeo al Mare was created from the two ancient towns of Rovere and San Bartolomeo. The first thing that strikes you when entering this town to the west of the River Steria are the bougainvillea hedges, the geraniums and orange trees lining the avenues and the aroma of aromatic herbs. The sanctuary of the Madonna della Rovere is very well known, as is the "Rovere d'Oro" International Music Competition, which draws many visitors every summer. Lying in the shade of English oaks, the sanctuary preserves a fifteenth-century crucifix and an oval fresco by Tommaso Carrega.
The spire of a bell-tower rises out of the old town centre of San Bartolomeo al Mare. The charming little church of Sant'Anna in the district of Poiolo is surrounded by cool palm trees and stands on a hillock (from which the locality gets its name) between Rovere and San Bartolomeo. Summer visitors can go for a swim in the sea or the swimming pool, and among the many amusements are numerous water sports, excursions on horseback, tennis and archery. As well as the simple country dishes of the inland areas, you can try the fish and sea-food dishes served in the seaside restaurants: all, of course, to be accompanied by Vermentino superior wine.
