Points of historical and artistic interest to see and discover in the Cervia area

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.
