La Torretta

Tourist offices: U.I.T. Brisighella

Explaination: The name and the configuration of the present construction are all that remain of a watchtower probably erected in the XV century, a short distance from the location of the castle of Fognano (XIII century).Later, other buildings were added to the tower which give origin to the present farm house (Dorile).

Additional notes: A little under the tower you can see a good example of a big landslide due to the detachment and subsequent sliding of the large stratified rocky masses caused by the infiltration of water.


The tower is always viewable from outside.


Admission is free.

Directions: La Torretta can be reached from the state road that connects Brisighella to Marradi. At Fognano take the provincial road for Valletta for about 2 km. When you reach the road-fork, turn right and continue to the tower.
