Where is it

Located along the Via Emilia Parmense, Cadeo is not far from the city of Cremona.

Why visit it

The sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of Carmel, located in Roveleto and built in eighteenth-century baroque style with neoclassical influences between 1750 and 1773, draws its origins from a pre-existing “mistadello” (small votive chapel).

When to go and what to see

In the month of May the celebrations linked to the Marian shrine.

Do not miss

The castle of Cadeo is mentioned for the first time in the fourteenth century, during which it was burned in 1310 on the orders of Alberto Scotti and destroyed in 1336 by the troops of Azzo Visconti, and it was destroyed again in 1449 by Angelo Sanvitale da Fiorenzuola. Unlike the neighboring hospital built in 1112 and of which only a heavily modified facade remains, the building is in a good state of conservation.

Main events

In April, the Agriculture Fair.


Nearby, the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Carmine (Blessed Virgin of Carmel), in Roveleto. The area is part of the pilgrimage route of the Via Francigena.
