Harmony and lightheartedness are the sensations this countryside offers, with its back to the coast of Rimini, Riccione, Misano Adriatico and Cattolica, it is crossed by the Marano stream.
The aromas of this fertile and rich land characterise some valuable products, first and foremost wine and oil to which two lively autumn fairs are dedicated. A land inhabited and exploited for millennia, which has seen the domination of Rome as early as the third century BC, of the Church of Ravenna in 120 and of the Malatesta family who rebuilt the Castle in 1440.
Slightly more than a hundred years later the Sassatelli from Imola arrived, whose coat of arms is still visible on the sixteenth-century entrance door of the fortification, as well as on the outer walls, polygonal towers and the double system of doors. The Antiquarium, a permanent exhibition of artefacts found in the area, is on display in a house inside the Castle.
Contemporary history has also left eloquent traces here, first and foremost the English War Cemetery which houses the remains of over 1,500 war dead of the Eighth Army. Managed directly by Commonwealth authorities, it is one of the largest foreign cemeteries in Italy and is considered a garden cemetery, due to the variety of flowers and plants that adorn it. Its presence is the dramatic result of a clash between allied forces and German troops in 1944 for the breakthrough of the Gothic Line which marked the end of World War II.
Coriano is excellently equipped for a stay in the sign of outdoor activities, including cycling, mountain biking, walking and horseback riding, especially in the Marano Park, which offers a luxuriant green island, equipped for many outdoor activities, aimed at exercising or resting. There is also a lake, popular for sportfishing, and several equestrian centres.
In the historical walk around the Marano in the territory of Coriano, the remains of seven medieval castles are visible: the most important one is the castle of Coriano, which has been extensively restored; the others are Cerasolo, Passano, Mulazzano, Besanigo, Monte Tauro and Vecciano.
