Historic heart of Samoggia Valley, about twentifive km far from Bologna, Monteveglio is located at the foot of a medioeval village dominated by an Abbey and Castle of the XI century, which became a possession of the Matilde di Canossa Countess and theater of historical battles over the centuries.
And precisely the Abbey, which stands over the country, is the symbol of Monteveglio. A charming place where history and spirituality are combined with a breathtaking view of the entire valley and the plains.
You can walk around the Abbey in nature and participate in several initiatives and excursions organized by the Regional Park of Monteveglio.
Monteveglio is a Wine City, hosts renowned wineries and the headquarters of the Colli Bolognesi Wine Consortium, and it is an important step along the Wines and Tastes Path " Castles Cherries City ".
Its medioeval past is commemorated every year in the month of June, during the historic "Abbey Feast". Always from the popular tradition is the cheerful "Saracca Feast " and the Votive Candle delivery.
