The Costarella is one of the most peculiar streets of Numana. Entirely made of steps, it was once inhabited by fishermen who daily crossed this evocative stairway to go down to the port. Learn more

La Costarella

The writer Cesare Romiti in his book "Guide remembrance of Numana" (1927) thus spake of "Costarella" : "….but to a certain stretch of Via Umberto (now Via Roma) two roads branch off, one on the left that leads to the beach, where they go to bathe the frequenters of Numana Alta, known with the name of the beach of San Lazzaro, or, more commonly, with that of Spiaggiuola; the other on the right, between a double row of small houses, officially named glue designation of Via della marina, but that nobody called so because that road ripidissima, that path improbable, as he had to call him Vico d'Arisbo, that at certain points reaches the slope of 24 or 25% comes from all call and from all known with the name Very eufemistico of "Costarella"

Stroll along the Costarella means immersing oneself in a distant past. The houses are built in the typical stone of the Conero bring us back to a time in which mining industries was one of the main activities of the Conero. In Numana, and in the area of the Conero promontory, can now be admired the wonderful buildings; as writes the archaeologist Simone Sasso is "villas, but also houses, now in most restored, that punctuate di candido limestone the wooded slopes of monte, both toward Ancona that in slope from Sirolo descends until at the coast of Numana. The stone of the Conero was used up to more recent times (the closing of the last cave dates back to the second half of the sixties) both as a finishing element of buildings, that for the walls of the enclosure and supports, becoming sign characterizing even some districts built up around 1950at Ancona, in the zone of the Passetto.
(from the book of Simone Sasso: "The Conero Roman quarry: an evidence of the mining activity".

Symbol of this town, the tower is the only medieval remain of this ancient city. Learn more

The Tower

In a manuscript preserved in the parish and entitled "Audience" i.e. inventory of the Parish Church, it says that the current track of the tower was called Via San Giovanni and that the Tower ".... served as the bell tower and in the lower part, also from the sacristy to the same Church", it can therefore be assumed that the current tower is what remains of the ancient parish church of San Giovanni. For Numana The Tower has great archaeological importance since, in fact, the only remnant of medieval origins of this ancient city. The ruins, which has lost its physiognomy of tower, currently presents itself as a structure similar to that of an arc.

State ANTIQUARIUM OF NUMANA

hosted in a building owned by the local municipal administration, the Antiquarium of Numana was established and opened to the public in 1974 for the purpose of exposing the exceptional finds discovered in the course of the fortunate excavation campaign conducted between the end of the sixties and the beginning of the next decade. On that occasion were placed in light over five hundred burials picene belonging to the necropolis of the Quagliotti-Davanzali area of Sirolo. As a result of these discoveries, Numana is confirmed to be the most important center of the Piceno in protohistory. Even the recent discoveries made in its necropolis confirm the important role that this natural harbor, placed on the slopes south-eastern parts of the Conero, has done over the centuries VI, V and IV century B.C. to the detriment of the neighboring Ancona. Of the three areas of necropolis (area Quagliotti- window sills of Sirolo; area cemetery-Montalbano Numana; area de "I Pini" of Sirolo) relating to the ancient Numana located between Numana and Sirolo, currently only the necropolis dei Pini is musealizzata. This is the only archaeological area of the marches in which it is possible to visit a sector of a Piceno necropolis adequately illustrated by didactic panels arranged along the path of the visit. Recently archaeologists have brought to light a new important archaeological find, i.e. the tomb of princess picena Sirolo of the end of the VI century a.C.. In particular the discovery has covered two chariots of different types (a biga and a horse-drawn carriage). For a funeral rite typical of community picena Numana, the two carriages, as in other cases found in central Italy Adriatica, were dismantled and suitably arranged in the pit of the tomb. Inside the Antiquarium, in a suitable support which returns the situation of the excavation were placed the metal elements recovered and restored the two carriages, keeping unchanged the ratios and the size of arrangement. Together with the wagons have been given prominent position to another important and rare relic: a kline decorated in ivory and amber. The presence of this precious product constitutes a further confirmation of the extraordinary importance of this royal burial. In addition to the findings relating to the service simposiaco (craters and cups penthouses with black figures, an oinochoe, colander, spider bronze) and to the instrumentum domesticum (andirons and spits of iron, dolii in terracotta) there are materials and articles of personal adornment relative to the funerary dress (fibulae of shapes and different types, pendants-bibs and sandals). The many archaeological findings and kept at the Antiquarium, together with an important context tomb dating back to the last decades of the VI century B.C., tempered at Sirolo-Numana at the end of the last century and preserved in the museum of Florence, allow to make some interesting considerations on trade, on relations and trade that the port of Numana conversed with Greece and other ports in the northern Adriatic, especially with plug. The prosperity and welfare certificates from the rich tombs discovered in its necropolis, are a reflection of the non-secondary function that the center piceno has done. Murals of materials from Numana and then finished in museums and collections from both Italian and foreign (craters attics and cyma of Etruscan candlestick in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, a breastplate of Paris and loop of Hydria of Munich) confirm the importance of Numana in protohistory.

Numana SS Crucifix coming from the Holy Land and worshipped even by the Emperor Charlemagne. Learn more

THE SANCTUARY OF THE SS CRUCIFIX

The Sanctuary was built between 1561 and 1566. In October of the same year the crucifix was transferred to the new Shrine, with imposing festivities.

The Sanctuary, a rectangular shape, originally measured 20 m. wide and 22 m. of height. Within the structures were arranged in the form of a Greek cross. The chapel is intended to accommodate the crucified was adorned with precious marbles. In the course of the years the building underwent changes: in fact, to meet the living requirements of Prior, the upper part was enlarged.

With the coming years the temple, for structural reasons, became unsafe; any repair would have been in vain and the only way to be followed was that of the reconstruction that began in the course of the year 1967. The new Shrine, as it is today, was inaugurated on 6 July 1969.

The SS crucifix of Numana

tradition more widespread is certainly that indicates this Crucifix as work carried out by those who set down from the Cross and gave burial to the body of Christ. The Crucifix, once finished, was kept in the home of a Jew, but shortly after, the opera was discovered and damaged.

Carlo Magno, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, came to know some of the wonders of the Crucifix, decided to donate it to Pope Leo III. During the transport of the Crucifix at the height of the then imposing the port of Numana, a furious storm forced the Emperor and his entourage to land and to leave the relic at the church of S. John the Baptist. The Emperor in the meantime, for urgent diplomatic reasons, was forced to reach the Lombardy and subsequently France where he died in 814 A.D. The Crucifix, after his death, remained in Numana forgotten by his successors. In the year 846 A.D. Numana was devastated by telluric movements of considerable entity, that destroyed a large part of the houses and also the church of S. John so that the Crucified One seemed to be lost. In 1294 some fishermen Numanesi found in sea the crucifix and once freed from debris that the covered, was brought in a chapel spared by the earthquake in the vicinity of the walls of the country, at the height of the existing remains of the "Tower" and there remained there until 1566.

Due to the decline of Numana and for the prosperity of the nearby castle of Sirolo where the pilgrims found hospitality, the crucifix was called "Sirolo" while previously, as can be seen from some documents it was said "Crucified Numana".
