Pristine and waiting to be discovered, this area is an extraordinary combination of history and nature. The Montone Valley joins Romagna and Tuscany in a series of gentle rolling hills, an area rich in precious finds which have maintained their pristine character until today. This valley was part of Tuscany until it was annexed to the Province of Forlì in 1923.
The history of the picturesque village of Castrocaro Terme goes back as far as Roman times. It is dominated by a fortress, which today hosts an important Medieval Museum, home of a permanent historical exhibition and of the “Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori” Wine Cellar.
First becoming famous as the town of curative waters and muds in the last century, Castrocaro Terme knew of its good fortune as early as 1400. In 1938 a state-of-the-art hot springs complex was inaugurated. The project called for the construction of three basic buildings for the Thermal City: a bathing facility, the Grand Hotel and the Amusement Pavilion. Realization of the project was entrusted to the engineer Diego Corsani, who in turn engaged the architect Tito Chini for artistic advice; the hand of Chini is indeed evident in every aspect of the complex.
