Arrival in Castrocaro Terme e Terra del Sole

Castrocaro is a medieval village on the hills of the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines, built in a strategic position on a rocky spur. The town has become a renowned spa since the end of the 19th century but its history is much older, dating back to the Middle Ages, and its growing prestige led it to become the capital of the Tuscan Romagna province throughout the Renaissance and beyond.
