THE WONDERS OF CERVIA
TORRE SAN MICHELE (ST. MICHAEL’S TOWER)
A veritable fortress overlooking the Cervia canal, Torre San Michele (St. Michael’s Tower) was built at the end of the 17th century for purely defensive purposes. It was necessary to protect the port, and above all the salt storehouse, from attacks by Turks and brigands. Hence the presence of embrasures and openings for small weapons and cannons. Later it was used as a lighthouse, rising above the sea. Today it offers an extraordinary panoramic view of the town.
Where: Via Arnaldo Evangelisti 4, Cervia
Entrance: the panoramic room on the top floor is only accessible for exhibitions or organized initiatives
MUSA - MUSEO DEL SALE (MUSA - THE SALT MUSEUM)
Right in the heart of the historical centre of Cervia, inside the "Torre" Salt Warehouse, this imposing building once stored the town's salt and today houses a rich collection of artefacts, documents, equipment and historical photographs that bear witness to the memory of work carried out in the saltworks.
It is true historical evidence of how Cervia played a fundamental role in the production, extraction and processing of "white gold". The museum is now recognised as a Quality Museum of the Emilia-Romagna region.
