Porto Sant'Elpidio

(300+ reviews from 1 attraction)
Historic Sites
Porto Sant'Elpidio is a coastal town in the province of Fermo, Marche, Italy. The commune is home to 25,071 inhabitants.GeographyPorto Sant'Elpidio’s nearly 8km of coast once made the commune the most extensive in length in the province of Ascoli Piceno, but this is no longer true as it now belongs to the new province of Fermo. The commune is principally developed along the coast, following the two principal coastal roads: Statale 16 Road and the Adriatic Railway line.The city's territory is included between the Chienti (north) and the Tenna (south) rivers. Today, it follows a strong demographic increase from later years, and the development is continuing on the low hills that rise immediately inland from the Statale 16 Road; the Corva and Cretarola districts are the highest point of the city's territory, with interesting sea views.HistoryThe history of Porto Sant'Elpidio is relatively short. From some excavations within the commune's area many important archeological finds were discovered, which confirmed the presence of Etruscan burial sites that date back to 8th century B.C. From renaissance maps there are annotations of a small village on the coast, with the name Porto San Lupidio, with a sea teeming with fish and a little away from Castrum Castri, now known as Fermo. In spite of the passage of years and the continued immigration from southern Italy, the village remained small until 1952, when it obtained communal independence from Sant'Elpidio a Mare, changing its name from 'Porto di Sant'Elpidio a Mare' to 'Porto Sant'Elpidio'.
