Heritage from the past
Among the main locations that deserve a visit, we wish to highlight:
- The Sforza Castle
Not far from the ancient Porta Montanara, the 13th century Sforza Castle is a majestic example of fortified architecture, poised between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Its interiors host a vast collection of ceramics and weapons and are also the quarters for the important Piano Academy of the Maestro Franco Scala.
- Palazzo Tozzoni
Just a few steps away from the Castle, you will find the magnificent Palazzo Tozzoni, a rare example of a perfectly conserved aristocratic residence.
The Cathedral of Imola
We also recommend visiting the Cathedral of Imola, dedicated to the city’s patron Saint Cassiano, founded around the year 1200, but probably transformed at the end of the XVIII century.
Other important landmarks are the church of Santa Maria in Regola, the Palazzo Sersanti dating back to the Renaissance, and above all the Museum complex of San Domenico.
Popular events in Imola
Among the many events that take place during the year in Imola, we must signal the Baccanale
, a food and wine event which, during November, involves all the restaurants of the city, Imola in Musica
with its concerts at the beginning of June, the Carnival of the Fanta-vehicles
and the summer cinema festival, hosted in the court of the Sforza Castle.
