In the past it was such an important port that it gave its name to the whole basin it overlooked: the Adriatic Sea. Much of the culture and history of this country, which today lives almost exclusively from an economy centred on the hinterland, can be seen in the religious buildings in the centre and in the prestigious National Archaeological Museum which preserves Greek, Etruscan, Roman and Paleovenetian finds and has the greatest attraction in the so-called 'della biga' tomb belonging to a Venetian or Celtic warrior. It is worth visiting the new and the old Cathedral, inside which there are frescoes from the 8th century, the church of S. Nicolò da Tolentino and the church of S. Maria Assunta della Tomba, with the ancient baptismal font, a fresco and a high relief from the 15th century.
