ROCCHETTA MATTEI CASTLE & OLD VILLAGES
An itinerary to discover some of the historical and artistic excellences of the Bolognese Apennines. A walk inside the Borgo La Scola, where time seems to have stopped; a visit to the Sanctuary of Montovolo, where religion and history meet; the spectacular scenery of the Sasso di Vigo; the amazing beauty of Rocchetta Mattei, the mysterious castle with an exotic character. A tour to be experienced, accompanied by an expert guide, without giving up an excellent lunch with local products.
Borgo La Scola : here we will walk inside a sixth century village perched to a complex of tower-houses: a place where time seems to have stopped. A guided tour with the cultural association Sculca will allow us to discover all the curiosities.
Sanctuary of Montovolo : we continue to climb up to the top of Montovolo, where stands the homonymous shrine dating back to the thirteenth century, the main devotional center of the city of Bologna until the edifation of the Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of San Luca. Not far away is the oratory of Santa Caterina, near which we can enjoy a breathtaking view of the valley.
Sasso di Vigo : left behind the Sanctuary, we will head towards the Sasso di Vigo, once a feudal village, remembered today by the Romanesque church of Santo Stefano. Very striking is the perspective that is created between the church and the fortress as you approach it, ideal for taking a great picture.
Lunch at the Mill: filled the artistic-historical hunger, it's time to give us a break. We will have lunch inside an old mill with local specialties: tigelle, cold cuts and mountain cheeses. To promote digestion, we can take part in a guided tour
Rocchetta Mattei : we will end the tour by visiting this magnificent castle, the pearl of the Bolognese Apennines. Built in the second half of the nineteenth century, it owes its name to Count Cesare Mattei, the father of electromyopathy. Here we will lose ourselves among richly decorated rooms and towers that make heaven, between history, anecdotes and mysteries never revealed
