Verghereto is a very extensive municipality, bathed by the clear waters of the river Savio and the sacred river Tevere, whose boundaries are intertwined with Tuscany, Romagna and Marche.
Mount Fumaiolo has altitudes ranging from 500 to 1500 meters, it offers whitewashed Apennine landscapes during the winter and a nature full of life during the hottest season.
In the medieval period this luxuriant green area, immersed in silence, was chosen as a place of prayer by S.Romualdo and S.Alberico, who built some suggestive monasteries there.
During the fifteenth century, the territory of Verghereto is disputed between some local families, following these events, a part of the district was annexed to the Florentine Republic. The history of the territory is closed to the Tuscan one until 1923, when this part of the Tuscan Romagna was definitively annexed to the province of Forlì.
Verghereto also bears the memory of a dramatic event, dating back to World War II: Tavoli, a fraction of Verghereto, in 1944 was the tragic scenario of a Nazi-Fascist massacre where 64 civilians lost their lives.
The surroundings of Verghereto still offer the opportunity to take refuge in a place of reflection and prayer: the Eremo di Sant'Alberico, an hermitage surrounded by a silent nature, at an altitude of 1,147 above sea level, which offers unique views to those who love refreshing, far from stressful rhythms that daily life imposes. The hermitage is located in an ancient beech forest and is an ideal stop to restore the spirit and immerse yourself in unspoilt and silent nature.
