Brisighella, a little medieval town in the Lamone Valley, is built on and by three typical rocky hills. Once, it was a fortess belonging to the Manfredi family (14th century). The tower clock, with its 19th century clock, stands by a sanctuary known as Monticino. The older part of the town is a sort of labyrinth of narrow cobbled alleys, but its most famous feature is the so-called "Via degli Asini" (the street of the asses), a porticoed street running on the first floor along a row of houses.
A wide countryside, steep paths and flights of steps, ancient churches and houses: all this makes you think of a world of noble knights, ladies, duels and battles, love and murders. In June and July there are popular medieval festivals combining culture and gastronomy. Brisighella has antique origins: findings of "Tenaccia" cave, close to Monticino - Limisano road that leads to Riolo Terme, show the remains of human settlements that date back to the Neolithic and Bronze Age. Nowadays urban settlement is traditionally attributed to Maghinardo Pagani from Susinana, considered the greatest medieval commander of Romagna. The neo-classical town hall building of Brisighella has been called after him.
