The whole countryside which surrounds Castelvetro offers a spectacle of agriculture in blossom, especially in springtime the "Fiorita" offers a fine display of rare beauty, perhaps the only one of its kind in the world: thousands of cherry trees with snow-white blossom, which cover the entire area of Castelvetro and its neighbouring districts, has attracted numberless visitors.
Numerous monuments also provide a great attraction to this area. The most illustrious monument is the Castle which overlooks the town; it probabily dates back to the 11th century, it was first quoted in a document of 988 and was remodelled on various occasions, it had seven towers, was surrounded by a wall and was the finest and most fortified in the whole region. After passing through several events over the centuries, all that remains of it is the walls, the tower and the feudal Rangoni palace, now used as a rectory.
