This itinerary starts right in the heart of this thermal town, at the foot of the greenest hills of Sillaro and Santerno Valley.
While entering Castel San Pietro Terme town center, it is impossible to ignore the imposing presence of Cassero: symbol of the city, this ancient fortification today hosts the Municipal Theater. Once crossed the arch, narrow streets and portici will naturally lead the visitors to the living heart of this “Città Slow”: Square XX Settembre. This wide and curated is animated by markets and art installations all year round. During Christmas time, lights, decorations and nativity create an evocative atmosphere.
Overlooking the square, are the City Hall and Crucifix Sanctuary, which encloses an important part of history and traditions in Castel San Pietro Terme.
Moving towards Via Castelfidardo, very close to the square, and walking along it, it is possible to take a look at the remains of the ancient walls, that used to protect the town center: when at its peak, the defensive system could count on many walkways over the walls.
