Art and culture

Our history is the story of two elements: salt and the sea. You can learn all about it through our buildings, our museums, and our art spaces.

Past, present, future

Priceless heritage to discover and enjoy

Spend a few days, or even just a few hours, taking in some culture. If you take a stroll through the historic town centre, you can step into several museums and places of worship, see the stunning Art Nouveau Villas, or learn about the history of the Camillone salt pans and the salt warehouses. And if you are still hungry for more art and culture, within 40 km of Cervia you can find an amazing 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
