The municipality belongs to the Comunità montana del Metauro. Orciano di Pesaro is visible from a distance by two towers. One of the sights of Orciano is the 40-meter-high Torre Civica with the bell tower, whose clock strikes every quarter, half and three quarters of an hour, as well as all the hours. The extraordinary dial has only one hand. So many visitors think that the clock is broken. At second glance, you can see six Roman numerals on the page and quarter, half and three-quarter lines in the inner circle, the dots indicate the full hours.
