Magliano di Tenna | Accommodation details
An ancient classification quotes it as “Castrum Ultra Tomiam” (an estate of the town of Fermo). It is a verbal tradition, that has no verification in any official documents or deeds, that around the year 1000, a mercenary captain named Malleano or Majano was the founder of the Castle. We have a citation by Bradimarte regarding the Magliano Community which explains how the place-name would derive from the roman family of the “Manli”. In the Roman times of ciglio Cesare, Magliano gravitated in the orbit of “Firmun” one of the first settlements of the Piceni.
It was a Farfense settlement later usurped by the Bishop of Fermo. During the Middle Ages it was disputed over for a long time by Montegiorgio and Fermo. Starting from 1293 it becomes permanently a castle of Fermo. Magliano wil stay under the government of Fermo until 1860, after the plebiscite of that year the province of Fermo is suppressed and united with the province of Ascoli Piceno. Great damage was inflicted on the historical knowledge of this Municipality by the destruction of the archive in a fire. The ancient castle had six towers, but now only two remain, one of which is hexagonal.
Monuments and Churches
- Parish Church of San Gregorio Magno, built in the XVIII century on the area occupied by a previous building of Farfense origins, preserves of that construction a chapel with a fresco which was once attributed to Vincenzo Pagani “a Madonna that holds in her arms the Infant Jesus between St. Vittoria and St. Lucia”.
- Church of the Madonna delle Grazie, built in the XVIII century on a pre-existing XV century small temple; in the apse it preserves XVI century frescoes amongst which a “Crucifixion”.
