Not just sea...
Cervia, ancient city of salt, is not only sea, but also culture and history. It is very easy to fall in love with this city and its historic center, completely rebuilt brick by brick at the end of the 17th century.
You can start from the Quadrilateral, the perimeter built starting from the end of the seventeenth century to give hospitality to the families of the salt workers, to stop then in Piazza Pisacane, also called “Piazzetta delle erbe”. Once used for trade and commerce, today it is one of the most evocative corners of Cervia, with two precious "jewels": the old fish market”, active until a few decades ago, and the “stone of the measurements”, an ancient table from “Old” Cervia. From there you come to the central Piazza Garibaldi, the heart of the civil and religious center of Cervia since 1697 and which houses the Town Hall and the Cathedral.
Along the perimeter of the quadrilateral you can instead find the nineteenth-century “Walter Chiari Theater”, while one of the absolute pearls to admire is the “Magazzino del Sale” divided in two: the Torre Warehouse, built in 1691, and the Darsena Warehouse, built in 1712, served in the past to ensure the storage of salt produced in the prestigious Saline a few kilometers away. Inside the Torre warehouse it is possible to visit the MUSA, the Salt Museum, which houses an important part of the history of Cervia with precious objects, images and documents who testify the salt civilization. Adjacent to the warehouse stands the mighty Torre San Michele, built in the same year as the warehouse for defense against pirate attacks: a square plan with a side of 13.5 m, a height of 22.5 m and walls 3 m thick, a real fort to defend the people of Cervia from sea attacks.
We could talk for hours about our beautiful city, but it is even easier to visit us: because Cervia is a small big city to discover.
