The Via Romea Nonantolana-Longobarda

After crossing the river Po, the Via Romea Nonantolana-Longobarda enters Emilia-Romagna. The route heads south-west and, passing over the territory of Modena, enters the Panaro valley, crosses the Croce Arcana Pass, descends through the high Lima valley (in Tuscany) and, after passing through Pistoia, reaches Fucecchio-San Miniato, where it connects to the Via Francigena. Here the pilgrims can choose whether to continue till Rome (and, if desired, continue to the Holy Land) or to reach Santiago de Compostela. Along the way, there are places of great significance of faith: the abbey of Nonantola (founded by St. Anselm, a native of the Lombard city of Cividale dei Friuli – not to be confused with St. Anselm of Aosta), Modena (the ancient Roman city of Mutina), Spilamberto and Fanano (with their ancient places of hospitality) and Pistoia (also known as “Minor Santiago”, given the presence of the relic of St. James).
