Provincia di Bologna

Via San Pietro site (former Bios Cinema)


It is one of the most exciting findings of the eastern Bologna area: the paleo-Christian Basilica dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul, of which are preserved the big perimeter walls and the bases of the nave columns. The area, which was a burial place in the 14th century, is located over evident material traces of a Roman settlement dating back to the II century B.C.
The site is in the "Borgo" neighbourhood of Castel San Pietro Terme, in an urban area which has been hosting human settlements starting at least from the 1st century B.C.


Address: Via San Pietro, 40024 - Castel San Pietro Terme (BO)

How to get there

How to get to Castel San Pietro Terme


The area of Via San Pietro is in the heart of the town centre, more precisely in the "Borgo" neighbourhood, next to the old "Via Emilia" (Via Mazzini today). It is thus very close to Via Emilia 9 Highroad, at the beginning of the built-up area of Castel S. Pietro Terme.

In Via San Pietro there was once the Bios Cinema, which was completely destroyed in order to construct a building which will allow anyway visits to the archaeological site.

It seems that the Basilica of San Pietro gave the name to Castel San Pietro.
