Castel San Pietro Terme

Description

Town near Bologna, situated at the foot of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, along the ancient Via Emilia, the history of Castel San Pietro Terme began after the Battle of Legnano, when Bologna, decided to defend their peace and autonomy and ordered the building here a castle for defense purposes of the surrounding territory. However, over the centuries, the inhabitants knew very few moments of peace, being often subject to raids and destruction caused by foreign armies, that several times, seriously damaged and burned the main center.
Castel San Pietro Terme is a popular and renowned spa resort, thanks to the therapeutic qualities of the water spring Fegatelli, already famous in the XIV century.

The first building was in wood and over the centuries it was transformed into a stone bulwark, used by the various conquerors as defense against their enemy attacks, until early 1500, when Bologna and Imola became part of the Papal State and Castel San Pietro lost much of its military purposes;
