Sestola, Orange Flag of the Italian Touring Club, called "The Green Pearl" is one of the most renowned tourist resorts in the Apennines. It is located on the saddle of a buttress, perched at the foot of a cliff surmounted by the ancient fortress, at an altitude of 1,020 metres.
Living in harmony with the mountains, in harmony with the environment, the territory and local traditions, is an experience that in Sestola can be enjoyed alone or with the whole family. There are in fact many possibilities to experience a tailor-made holiday for young and old! To rediscover uncontaminated nature in all simplicity, you can take advantage of the protected territories of the Frignano Park or the great shows of the lakes and waterfalls present throughout the area.
Sestola is also the ideal destination to spend free time among cultural events, traditions and to relax among the green Apennine mountains. In addition to the noteworthy monuments including churches, oratories but also hamlets and manor houses, the most interesting complex to visit is certainly the Fortress or Castle, which houses several very important museums including that of mechanical musical instruments, one of the few existing in Italy, and that of the Ancient Mountain Civilization.
