Salvarola Terme and Sassuolo

Historical and cultural splendours


Salvarola Terme sits on the hills 3 km from Sassuolo, undisputed capital of the ceramic district, a chest filled with treasures and pleasures, surrounded by gently rolling hills and crowned by ancient forts and atmospheric castles.

The town unveils its wonders to visitors, starting with the Ducal Palace, a gem of baroque architecture and the holiday home of Duke Francesco d’Este. Its interiors greet visitors with magnificent frescoes and decorations created by outstanding baroque artists. Those with a passion for speed must not miss the nearby town of Maranello, home of the legendary Ferrari, easily reached from Terme di Salvarola.
