Where is it

This municipality, with a clear agricultural vocation – beans are the typical local crop – is located a few kilometers from the Fiorenzuola d’Arda motorway exit.

Do not miss

The historical-architectural heritage is rich in buildings of considerable value: the church, dedicated to San Vitale, built in the early twentieth century; the town hall; the war memorial; the church of Bersano, built in the second half of the 20th century to replace the previous building from the 18th century; the church of Mercore.

On the table

Borlotti beans, which have always been grown by local farms, are the products that best represent the Municipality of Besenzone.
