SAN PIETRO IN CASALE   Travel Guide


San Pietro in Casale is a municipality of 12,293 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. 

The findings made in this area, such as vases, cippi and sarcophagi, testify that the first settlements date back to the Roman Republican period. 

After the barbarian invasions, the territory of San Pietro was part of the possessions of the city of Modena for a short period, then passed under the control of the city of Bologna and then of the Church.




what to see and what to do in SAN PIETRO IN CASALE 

Walking through San Pietro in Casale you can admire, in Piazza Martiri della Liberazione, three beautiful buildings of the eighteenth century, each one differently characterized: one with a mechanical clock, one with a solar sundial and the last with a votive capital. Very interesting is the Church of SS. Pietro e Paolo, of Romanesque origin and with a bell tower, always Romanesque, which however shows styles belonging to different periods, from the tenth century of the lower part to the mullioned windows of the sixteenth century. Inside the municipal park is Villa Padoa, probably dating back to the 16th century and recently restored. Worth a visit is the small hamlet of Maccaretolo, one of the oldest settlements in the area, where you can still admire the beautiful church of S. Andrea, of the fourteenth century, and the remains of the Palazzo of Giovanni Bentivoglio, of the late fifteenth century; in Rubizzano there is Palazzo Calderini, from the 16th century, characterized by a tower.
