MINERBIO Travel Guide
Minerbio is a municipality of 8.770 inhabitants in the province of Bologna.
The origins of the village date back to Roman times, as evidenced by its name, which seems to derive from that of the goddess Minerva, given that here once stood a temple dedicated to her.
The first official document that speaks of Minerbio dates back to 1231, when the Podestà of Bologna gave 150 Mantuan families this territory.
In 1300 the noble Isolani family settled in Minerbio, originally from Cyprus, to whom we owe the construction of the Church of San Giovanni Battista, which was later defined as one of the most beautiful in the area.
In 1403 the Visconti family extended their possessions to include Minerbio.
