Land of apples
Pomarolo is a peaceful village in a dell protected from the cold and wind.
As you may have deduced from the heading, apple cultivation is widespread.
Still today the entire countryside is used to grow apples, grapes and cherries
The village has ancient origins, as proven by the Romanesque traces on the Servis esplanade, the ruins of Castel Barco and the partially restored church of Sant’Antonio.
Some of the great minds of 700 were born in Pomarolo, such as Felice Fontana (physicist of the court of Pietro Leopoldo di Toscana, buried in Santa Croce in Florence), his brother Gregorio (professor of mathematics at the University of Pavia, librarian and finally among the leaders of the Repubblica Cisalpina), and Gerolamo Tartarotti (writer and philosopher, renowned in Europe for his stance against the superstition of witches).
The Comun Comunale
used to be based in the village, an institution whose aim was to regulate the use of public property.
Today you can take part in the events that commemorate historical events with open air theatre, music, dance, folk traditions, ancient crafts, markets and hundreds of people in medieval costume.
Add to Pomarolo’s merits the stunning views over the valley
that you can see at every bend in the road that climbs to Savignano and Servis.
