Art and culture,  don't miss it

Art and culture, don't miss it

Cervia's history is fascinating and worth discovering. Its historic centre is surrounded by an architectural quadrilateral of houses that tells about the past of a salt-tied town, where the saltpan workers' families would live.

A short walk away from the centre, outside the quadrilateral walls, the Salt Storehouses and the St Michael Tower - which once had the function of a check point over the salt trade - mirror onto the canal.

Down the port canal you get into the atmosphere of the Fishermen's Neighbourhood, characterised by a row of small terraced houses.

Borgo Marina - The Fishermen's Neighbourhood

Inhabited settlement established around 1833 and located around the canal harbour in Cervia, to accommodate fishermen from various parts of the Upper Adriatic area.
