Monte Conero (Mount Conero or Monte d'Ancona; Italian pronunciation: [ˈkɔ(ː)nero]) is a promontory in Italy, situated directly south of the city of Ancona on the Adriatic Sea. The name Conero comes from the Greek name Komaròs, that indicates the Strawberry Tree commonly present on the slopes of the mountain. The Conero is 572 meters high and it is the only coastal high point on the Adriatic sea from Venice to the Gargano massif in the region of Puglia. Since 1987 it is a state park and protected ecological area (Regional Park) with 18 trails and several archeological/historical sites. Wildlife include Eurasian Badger, Beech Marten, Least Weasel, Yellow-bellied Toad, Peregrine Falcon, Kingfisher and Pallid Swift. Apart the strawberry tree, vegetation include Oak, Holm Oak, Aleppo Pine, Cupressus sempervirens and many others. Hotel Monteconero stands at the top of the Conero promontory at an altitude of 550m and enjoys a magnificent position with a view of the Adriatic and the gentle hills of the Marches. Originally an 12th century Camaldolite abbey, the hotel has retained its external structure, including the Romanesque Church of St. Peter.
