Montefiorino Castle

Ancient walls dominating a breath-taking view.
The Castle of Memory

Built on a rocky spur 797 metres above sea level, it dominates the Dolo and Dragone Valleys from a position that has been fortified over the centuries to control the surrounding lands and the routes to the Apennine passes. The initial square tower erected in 1170 to guard the lands of the Abbey of Frassinoro then became the keep of the castle, built by the Montecuccoli family in 1235-1239 to defend the area from raids by the people of the Modena mountains to the east. The Montecuccoli retained it until 1429, after which it became a stronghold of the Este dukes until 1797.
Under German occupation during the 2nd World War it was the headquarters of the “Free Partisan Republic of Montefiorino” (June-August 1944). It houses the “Museum of the Partisan Republic and the Italian Resistance”.

Further to restoration works, the ancient Tower is now accessible to visitors and a panoramic balcony on its summit offers sweeping views over the Dolo and Dragone Valleys and the peaks of Mount Cimone and Mount Cusna.
