It is a town, located in the province of Bologna, situated on the northern slope of Mount Venere, between the valleys of the rivers Setta, Savena and Sambro. Although the area has been inhabited since the Eneolithic Ages, more significant are the findings of the Roman times. The town's name, in fact, probably derives from the names of the Roman gods: Jupiter (Mount Zeus) or Giunone (Mount Juno). In the late Middle Ages, in the district of Montorio, a castle was built on the boundaries between the area under the domain of the Byzantines and the one ruled by the Longobardi, destroyed in 1376.
Sites of Interest:
- the Church of St. John the Evangelist, built in 1891, whose interior features elements in Baroque style;
