The beautiful city of Modena, just 10 km from Globo Hotel, is today a lively city that certainly worth a visit. The Duomo, the Academy, the University’s botanical garden make it a point of artistic and cultural interest, and the Storchi Theater offers a season full of interesting musical and theatrical events.
Just 3km from Globo Hotel is the Medieval Village of Formigine, built in 1201. With its narrow streets and towers, for 800 years Formigine has been the protagonist of the events that have written the history of this territory, and today it is still an important cultural center.
Vignola and the Medieval Villages of the Modena Apennines
With just a 30 minutes drive you can reach Vignola, with its imposing castle, built in the 10th century in a strategic position on the plain to control the ancient roads. The beautiful village is the setting for the three towers of the Castle, one built entirely of river pebbles.
There are many medieval villages in the area, including Castelvetro, Spezzano and Pavullo, just to mention the nearest ones.
