At the foot of the green hills on the border between Emilia and Romagna, there is Castel San Pietro Terme, a city strongly vocated to thermal and wellness tourism.
In 2005 the certification of “Cittaslow” marked the entrance to “International network of Good Living Cities”, standing out for the high quality of life and the many services offered to residents and visitors.
In fact, the visitors confirm that in Castel San Pietro Terme life is better: someone visits the town for the thermal wellness, to play golf, to discover the MTB trails, go on a hike or sunbathe in the Lungo Sillaro green park.
Over the original roman and Medieval plant of the city, the historic center presents a seventeenth – eighteeenth century look, characterized by traditional porticoes reminding of the near Bologna.
Symbol of Castel San Pietro Terme is the Cassero, built in 1199, year of foundation of the town. Today, Cassero hosts the municipal theater.
Among the most admired monuments is the Santuary of the Cross, in the main square: besides it, the bell tower with a unique concert of 55 bells.
