Offida

(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews for 4 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, nightlife, museums
Offida is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Ascoli Piceno in the Italian region Marche, located about 80km south of Ancona and about 12km northeast of Ascoli Piceno, on a rocky spur between the valleys of the Tesino (from north) and Tronto (south) rivers.HistoryThe origins of Offida are debated. In its territory have been found tombs of the Piceni (7th-5th century BC) and Roman remains; however, the town is known only from 578 AD when the population, fleeing the Lombard invasion, founded several castles in the area, included that of Offida. The true first historical mention dates to 1039, when the Abbey of Farfa received the castle of Ophida, being confirmed in 1261 by Pope Urban IV.During the war between the communes of Ascoli and Fermo, Offida sided for the latter. In the early 16th century Offida signed a truce with Ascoli while, in the same period, all the lands of the Farfa Abbey went to the Papal States.From the late 19th century the economy, from a wholly agricultural one, started to rely on handicraft also.
