Art and culture

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.
