San Pellegrino in Alpe

Set on one of the slopes of the Alpe di San Pellegrino, the small mediaeval town was built around the homonymous sanctuary, flanked by a "hospitale" which guaranteed a stopping point for pilgrims and wayfarers who entertained business relationships between Tuscany and Emilia. A marble urn in the sanctuary by Matteo Civitali holds the remains of San Pellegrino and San Bianco.

Today, as before, San Pellegrino is a place of peace and serenity where pilgrims and travellers come in search of spirituality, tranquillity and thrilling landscapes.

Near the shrine, located within the ancient hospitale, is the Don Luigi Pellegrini Ethnographic Museum, dedicated to the rural activities of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. Furniture and objects from domestic life and other, ranging from the nineteenth century to today, are exhibited in 14 rooms.
