The oldest of the seven beaches of Comacchio
Overlooking the Adriatic Sea, in the province of Ferrara, Porto Garibaldi is the oldest of the seven beaches of Comacchio, also known as the Ferrara beaches. The historic quarter of this town corresponds to the Magnavacca district. Around 1600, the first masonry buildings arose, including the fifteenth-century guard tower known as theWhite Tower or Lambertini Tower, the Bettolino, thesalt warehouses, plus some wells for the supply of fresh water for the residents and the fishermen who landed there.
In the 19th century, new buildings were erected, such as the customs building and the port delegation, but also the new parish church and the lazaretto. On the first Sunday of July, the seaside resort comes alive for the Festa della Madonna del Mare, a procession with fishing boats and other decorated boats that takes place in the port.
