In the heart of Val d'Enza to discover the splendours of the Duchy
The ancient village of Cereggio, one of the many small hamlets that make up the municipality of Ramiseto, stands perched on a limestone hill in the Val d'Enza, near the Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-Emiliano. Inhabited since the Middle Ages, Cereggio gained popularity during the years of the Duchy of Parma, Piacenza and Guastalla, when the customs house was established and remained active until 1847.
Over the decades, the centre of Cereggio has been largely restored and has become one of the must-see points for hikers venturing to discover the Val d'Enza. In fact, the Sentiero dei Ducati (Ducati Trail) runs through here accompanying cyclists and trekking enthusiasts to discover the ancient roads that followed the Este borders between the 16th and 19th centuries, in 11 stages and almost 180 kilometres. The long trail, not suitable for the untrained, also meets other famous routes such as Via Francigena and Via Matildica del Volto Santo.
