Cervia (Milano Marittima)


Famous seaside resort of the Adriatic coast, Cervia, the ancient city of salt, was completely reconstructed during the XVII century. It is characterised by 10km of sandy beaches and shallow water, tourist facilities, bike paths, coloured and equipped gardens.
Cervia, with its districts of Milano Marittima, Tagliata and Pinarella, is no doubt one of the most appreciated tourist location of the area, both by Italians and by foreigners.
The development of tourism in the city, started during the last years of the XIX century, had a decisive impulse with the construction of Milano marittima, near the ancient pine forest.
According to tradition, Cervia was founded by a group of Greek colonists, who called it Ficocle. The actual place name was taken in the VIII century, as numerous documents of that time reveal.
The Cathedral, realised in 1702, is characterised by a simple, linear and not completed façade. Inside it is possible to admire XVIII century paintings, a panel by Barbara Longhi, a Baroque style altar coming from the deconsacrated Church of San Domenico in Forlì and San Paterniano's relics, the patron Saint of the town.
Not to be missed: San Michele Tower, dating back to 1691 and built in order to defend the town agaist the saracen attacks, the Salt Museum, rich in photos, documents and utensils for the production of salt, the Church of Suffragio, with a valuable XIV century wooden crucifix and a "gaetano Callido" organ, Piazza Garibaldi, the Church of Sant'Antonio, the spa centre and the Salt Pans of Cervia, a natural oasis of about 827 hectares from where "liman" or lagoon mud and water, precious elements for a healthy life, is extracted.
