04 Jul Medieval village of Petrella Guidi in Italy
During my day trip around the Romagna region of Italy, we stopped at the 13th century medieval village of Petrella Guidi. Located about six kilometers from Sant’Agata Feltria, the small village (and by small, I mean small) isn’t far from nearby Pennabilli.
The Petrella Guidi village and castle dates as far back as the Middle Ages when it was a fortified hillside town governed by a noble faction. Throughout history, the medieval village passed through many different noble families. The original castle of Petrella Guidi was surrounded by two walls—both of which can still be seen.
