The Romanesque Gems of Modena and its Surroundings

Logo CC

The Cathedral, the Ghirlandina Tower and Piazza Grande, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1997, are the starting point of this itinerary through the Romanesque soul of Modena, from the white and imposing Cathedral to the small parishes of the Apennines, in their intimate light, immersed in suggestive landscapes where architecture and simplicity intertwine harmoniously with the surrounding environment. 

Countless churches, abbeys, hospices and parish churches have flourished in this territory, historically an important crossroads between the Po Valley and central Italy, intersected by the Via Emilia and numerous pilgrimage routes - such as the Via Romea Nonantolana, the Via Romea Germanica Imperiale and the Via Bibulca.
