Towers and old walls of Varignana


Varignana is a village situated about a dozen kilometres far from Castel San Pietro Terme, on a hill which overlooks via Emilia.

It probably dates back to a previous period than the chief town. Prints and pictures testify the presence of a massive wall along the whole perimeter of the village, overlooked by a Fortress aimed at defending the place.
We do not have many remains of the walls, while the fortress is still present, owned by private citizens.


Address: Via De Iani, loc. Varignana-Palesio - 40024 Castel san Pietro Terme (BO)
