      Tower of the Abbazia

Forlí?s landmark was erected on the remains of a chapel which burnt down in 1173. It was finished in 1180 and compared to other buildings of similar age, it did not suffer from that many changes. The only mentionable change took place in the 16th century, when the apse was rebuilt. At least, this remained until WWII, when it was damaged during german bombings. From the 1950s, the church has been reconstructed to its original pre-war style.

The tower is ? with a height of 75 meters ? still one of the highest in Italy. It is open for public on weekends.
