Solarolo

Green fields and the colors of fruit trees accompany the arrival in Solarolo. Village of 14th-century layout that preserves evidence of a past linked to the Manfredi, lords of Faenza and the Gonzaga-Este family. Still present are part of the ancient walls and defensive towers. In his campaign, the most important Bronze Age archaeological site in Romagna was unearthed on Ordiere Street.

A 15th-century Carrara marble bas-relief depicting a Madonna and Child and kept in the town hall is attributed to Andrea del Verrocchio.

The 18th-century Shrine of Our Lady of Health, north of the town is still a heartfelt destination for devotion.
