The local olive oil "Brisighello"
The Romans already settled in this area and built an oil mill in the 2nd century along the historic tradepath between Florence and Faenza. The mill used a special procedure where the olives were grinded, not pressed. This procedure is still in use and the 3000 l production per year rank among the best in Italy.
|Donkey path in Brisighella|
Eventhough Brisighella is a small town, there is enough to see, like the via degli Asini: the historic donkey path, on which the chalk soil was transported down to town, the restaurants in a cave and of course, the clock tower and the castle ruin. Brisighella belongs to the most beautiful town in Italy (borghi piu belli dÌtalia)
