Castel Guelfo is located in the Bologna flatland, a few km away from Castel San Pietro Terme (10km) and Imola (13km).

Why visit it 

This Medieval village was built by Guelfo VII of Baviera, Matilde di Canossa’s husband, as a main defense for the city of Medicina around the year 1000.
The historical center still reflects the late-medieval structure. The access to the triangular square is through walls and towers.

Do not miss

Walking along the main street are historical buildings, such as Malvezzi-Hercolani Palace, with a precious courtyard and double portico, and Cassero, the original gate to enter the town.

Main events

On the last weekend of June “Sagra del Vino e della Ciambella” (Cake and Wine festival) enlivens the city with events and food stands. Do not miss out on the typical local delicacies.
