Overview

As you walk along Via Covignano, once you have passed the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie, you will reach the churchyard with a church, immersed in green and surrounded by pretty houses and gracious villas. It is possible to enjoy a beautiful view of the coast from the slopes of the Colle di Covignanos. With the panorama behind you, you will see the marvelous architectural vision: the church of San Fortunato. The church dates back to 1418 and was originally known as Santa Maria in Scolca and it was a rich abbey of the Benedictine Olivetani, built on the ruins of a castle given to the hermit monks of Saint Paul's by Carlo Malatesta. Renovations and changes were made during the 17th Century but they did not fundamentally changed the impact of Renaissance style, highlighted by The Adoration of the Magi the masterpiece of Giorgio Vasari created in 1547, which is located behind the main altar.
