Emilia Romagna Castles

Castello di Teodorano

Approximately 10 kilometres from Meldola, in the Forlì area of Emilia Romagna, you will find the Castle of Teodorano, much disputed for its strategic position, in the village enclosed by the medieval walls: you can reach it by following an evocative, narrow and steep road that in just a few kilometres takes you to the historic village, still largely enclosed within the walls of the stronghold. At a height of 385 metres, the Rocca di Teodorano dominates the Voltre and Bidente Valleys. Its origins date back to the 11th century, but the building underwent several transformations and reconstructions over time, especially in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The visit to the Castle of Theodoran, of which the tower and part of the walls remain today, begins with the Domus Tuderani and an illustration of the geological origins of the site of Theodoran. Numerous historical, documentary and photographic sources, as well as interesting artefacts, make it possible to continue the tour with notions of history, from the ancient Romans to the present day. The tour
continues with the entrance to the Castle of Teodorano, where tourists can rediscover the scenarios where duels for love and colourful tournaments characteristic of the mediaeval era took place, with the possibility of appreciating the model of the village of Teodorano, created by Professor Zaccheroni; it reproduces the village before the bombing of 23 October 1944 by the Anglo-American allies.
