Bagnacavallo is a delightful little town built to a mediaeval plan. You will appreciate the Basilica di San Pietro in Sylvis, a splendid example of Early Romanesque architecture, and the evocative, elliptical Piazza Nuova. The name of Bagnacavallo is told to come from the hot springs that might have healed emperor Tiberius' horse. It's worth to be seen for its well preserved historical town centre based on a medieval structure, for its colonnade streets and several nobiliary palaces and churches.
San Pietro in Sylvis parish church dating back to the VII century, it represents a typical example of exarchal architecture with simple facade in bare bricks. The crypt dates back to the XI century. The apse is entirely decorated with frescoes, by some scholars attributed to Pietro da Rimini, who painted them around 1320. The epigraphic museum preserves roman handle bricks, two sandstone fragmented plutei and the marble arches of a ciborium dating back to the VIII century.
Piazza Nuova is an oval square built in the XVIII century as a market for butchers, fishmongers and oil vendors. The interior consists of loggias sorrounding an elliptical structure with a series of thirty round arches held by square pillars. The structure is in bare bricks.
