The region of Romagna

Nevertheless, the part of the region where the traditional features of the landscape and of the historical towns and villages of Romagna were preserved in the best way in is the hilly area. Touching and unexpectedly beautiful are the landscapes from the plain to the Apennines peaks and to the Adriatic Sea.

Visiting the villages of Toscana and the Montefeltro area, you can find hundreds of treasures. Romagna is also the perfect region for the naturalists who are willing to visit its glorious nature reserves, such as the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna, the regional reserve of the Vena del Gesso Romagnola (of the chalk vein), the Park of the Po Delta and the park of Monte San Bartolo.

Romagna derives its name from "romandiola", which means small Rome, as it stood out as a bastion of the Roman world against the barbarian invasions all over Italy. Of this splendid and prolific period we still have the churches and the mosaics in Ravenna (45 km from Brisighella), the capital city of the Western Roman Empire. Its monuments are protected by UNESCO, as part of the World Heritage List.

Ravenna is not the only town that is interesting as regards history. Other towns like Faenza - (15 km from Brisighella), the capital of artistic ceramics, with the International Museum of Ceramics and its town centre with neoclassical features and palaces- Forlì, Imola, Cesena, Lugo and Bagnacavallo in the plain, or Rimini, Cervia and Cesenatico on the coast are really worth seeing.
