The whole countryside which surrounds Castelvetro offers a spectacle
of agriculture in blossom, especially in springtime the "Fiorita"

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.
