Guided tours through the history of Cattolica


The Museo della Regina, the Culture Department and the Cultural Services of the Municipality of Cattolica invite the local community and tourists on a journey through the history of the town, starting from its foundation in 1271.

The appointment with history is back again this year, to discover Cattolica, its village and its origins.
Cattolica, enclosed within a few kilometres, has a long tradition and deep roots.

The Museo della Regina is once again organising weekly events this summer, on Wednesday and Friday evenings, to take tourists and non-tourists on a surprising journey to discover the history and archaeology of the town and its seafaring traditions.

Qualified professional tourist guides will accompany participants to discover the historical centre, along the main points of interest of the ancient medieval and Renaissance town, identifying the historical, monumental and artistic heritage of the city:
the Museo della Regina, an ancient hospice for pilgrims and the S. Croce Oratory, the Church of S. Apollinare, the Rocca Malatestiana and the taverns and inns that sprung up along the Flaminian Way.
The excursus through Cattolica’s history will end in Via Cattaneo, along the ancient loggia, where it will be possible to visit the Paparoni Underground Gallery, the most interesting and complex architecture of Cattolica’s underground heritage.


HISTORIC CENTRE – A route along the main historical points of interest within the ancient medieval and Renaissance town.

PAPARONI GALLERY – A tour that ends at the Paparoni Underground Gallery, the city’s extraordinary underground heritage. The descent to the underground gallery requires comfortable shoes to avoid slipping.

Comfortable clothing is recommended.
