Chiesa di San Michele Arcangelo - Badia Tedalda
Badia Tedalda
A SMALL TOWN BETWEEN TUSCANY, EMILIA-ROMAGNA AND MARCHE, A DESTINATION FOR PILGRIMS AND MONKS OVER THE CENTURIES

The town of Badia Tedalda sits at the crossroads between three regions: Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Marche, along a stretch of pilgrimage road leading to Rome that was used over the centuries by monks, pilgrims and wayfarers. The small town center has maintained its mountain village charm and is centered around the Church of St. Michael the Archangel (dating to the 11th century), home to five splendid terracotta works executed in the Della Robbia style in the 16th century. Outside the town center is the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Presale, of which remain only the small church and medieval hermitage.

The territory around Badia Tedalda attracts visitors with its subtle and tranquil charm, ripe for discovery as you get lost along the centuries-old paths that make up part of the Nature Reserve of the Alpe della Luna, winding through the beech tree forests that still bear the traces of old coal burners, like – for history lovers – those on the Gothic Line, which crosses Italy in precisely this area.

A fun fact about the territory of Badia Tedalda is that there exists an exclave in the province of Rimini: the hamlet of Ca’ Raffaello is in fact a sort of small Tuscan island surrounded by the regional territory of Emilia-Romagna.
