Maiolati stands on a hill 412 meters above sea level.
It dates back to the Midddle Ages, like the other castles of  the middle valley of the River Esino.
In the thirteenth century Maiolati and Villa Talliano, situated in the middle of the hill that slopes into the River Esino, were two small villages located at a short distance from one another.
Thanks to its position, Maiolati became soon a castrum; it was part of the County of Jesi from the first decades of the thirteenth century  until its dissolution in 1808. Like many other villas in Vallesina, Villa Talliano was built after the eleventh century  as an extension of a curtis, that is a complex of dispersed landed properties. It belonged to the bishop of Jesi and was contended from Jesi in 1262 which then acquired all rights.
Not far away, take a gander inside the church of Saint Sisto of Talliano with the attached cloister.
The church and monastery were probably founded by the monks coming from St. Elena Abbey;  in fact they both belonged to it in 1199.
In 1305 they both suffered severe damages because of the struggle between Jesi and the inhabitants of Fabriano.
The church of St.  Sisto now standing in place of the monastery was probably  rebuilt in the XVIII-XIX centuries. Visit the remains from Neolithic and Roman ages found in this area, more exactly in Massarella Street on the east side of Maiolati.
In the period from the seventh to the ninth century, the whole ridge was the border area between the Longobard Duchy of Spoleto and Camerino and the Byzantine Pentapolis. Many of the “loci dominus” have a Longobard origin and they were later put to the head of the fortified villages and castles.

Itinerary

Distance:  km 5

Time advised: 75 minutes to go up, 45 minutes to go down

Difficulty: easy

 

Explore the wet route of the Black Crab on foot or on the saddle of a mountain bike, starting from the  museum of Castelplanio and going downhill along Caciampa Street until the ditch.

You can also leave your car in the square in front of the Church in Macine-Castelplanio, also called Castelplanio Stazione and follow Via Copparoni until you reach the entrance of the route.

The path is flat at first, but after 2 km it climbs up to Castelplanio and ends near the Town Hall Square (Palazzo Mancini).

Along the route, you can admire the river-wood located in the border area between Castelplanio and Rosora.

The vegetation boasts rare tree species such as the white alder, the narcissus and the wild orchid and you can also find butterbur and pennywort.

Fonte del Coppo, dating back to the XVIII century, is the first  water supply in Castelpanio and the quality of the ditch’s waters have been better since 1995.

This small river with waterfalls and  small lakes is the ideal spot to enjoy a strict contact with a natural world of profound beauty. Be careful: avoid it after rain!
