What to visit
Codigoro is a great starting point to visit:
• Pomposa Abbey: one of the most important religious building of the whole Northern Italy, built in ninth century and house of the Benedictines;
• Codigoro Cathedral;
• Bishop's Palace: built by the Benedictines, it is the administrative head office of Pomposa and Codigoro.
• Tower of Finance, built during the early years of the eighteenth century to control the trade routes on the banks of the Po di Volano. It was built by the Papal Government but, due to the continued erosion of the coast on which it stood, the building was completely destroyed during a storm in 1729. It was rebuilt from 1739 and completed in 1741 to be used as barracks of the Finance Guard until the early years of the twentieth century.
