Sermide

Overview

Preserving traditions

If you find yourself in the province of Mantua on a summer Monday, we highly recommend visiting Sermide. In an event called Summer Monday, a great dinner is prepared featuring typical products paired with a delicious glass of Lambrusco. Between music and food, you can also admire and buy local handicrafts.

It is the birthplace of the delicious Sermide onion, which has been awarded PAT (Traditional Agri-Food Product) recognition. Near the village, you can visit the museum dedicated to it. Speaking of typical dishes, this onion is the main ingredient of tiròt, a focaccia made of wheat flour, lard and onions that was the main food for people working in the fields.

However, there are plenty of reasons to visit Sermide at any time of the year. In its historic centre, don’t miss the crenelated tower of an important 11th-century fortress and the bell tower of the parish church of Saints Peter and Paul, traces of which date to 1037. 

Along the border with Veneto and Emilia-Romagna, you can enjoy a picturesque bike ride along the Po riverbank or a walk through the vast countryside of the Po Valley, to enjoy a timeless moment of peace immersed in silence.
