THE FISHING VILLAGE
One of the reasons the atmosphere of Cesenatico is unique and inimitable is its rich history.
One of the reasons the atmosphere of Cesenatico is unique and inimitable is its rich history. Consider that the origins of today’s Cesenatico date back to 1314, when the port was built where the ancient Ad Novas had stood in Roman times. Even today you can still breathe the atmosphere of the fishing village in every corner of the town; wander through its narrow alleys, admire the colourful houses of the fishermen that surround you and the picturesque views and enchanting squares. We would like to take you now to a special place, the Piazza delle Conserve, where fish was once stored through the winter in the characteristic wells in this square. Cesenatico’s history, however, does not only revolve around the sea, but is also inextricably linked to two famous people who stayed here: Leonardo Da Vinci and Giuseppe Garibaldi. In 1502 Da Vinci designed the port, while in 1849 Garibaldi embarked at Cesenatico to sail to Venice which was under siege by the Austrians.
