Traces of Jesi's dramatic history can be found in buildings such as the Church of St. Maria delle Grazie, the Church of St Nicolò, the Church of St. Marco, the Cathedral of Jesi St Settimio, Palazzo Rococò Pianetti Tesei, the Pergolesi Theatre, Palazzo Ricci, Palazzo della Signoria, the Fontana del Grilli Obelisk, the city walls, the Civic Art Museum in Palazzo Pianetti Tesei, the Civic Archeological Museum in Palazzo della Signoria.
Jesi's fame is also linked to its wine making traditions, and in particular to the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. The local gastronomic traditions feature fresh pasta, potato gnocchi with duck sauce, rabbit in potacchio, tripe alla canapina, and fish soup.
