The main city is Massa; its historic center is characterized by the medieval part with narrow, winding streets and the sixteenth century part, built by Cybo Malaspina, lords of the city from the century. Among the sites of tourist interest you can visit the Cathedral and the Palazzo Ducale. The other main city is Carrara, is known throughout the world as the “City of Marble”, being surrounded by the white marble of the Apuan Alps, the place of the intense activity of extraction and processing stone. This is apparent in particular in the monuments of the Cathedral with the Romanesque-Gothic facade, the sixteenth-century residence of the Cybo-Malaspina and the Palace of the Lodges. Interesting is the visit of the Museum of Marble. In the rest of the province we highlight the visit to some caves such as the Quarry Museum Fantiscritti and Cava of the Poets near Campocecina, whose walls were carved sentences of famous people and famous poets. Among the most characteristic villages in Lunigiana we recommend to go to Fosdinovo, dominated by a medieval castle; Aulla to admire the Fortress of Brunella, which takes its name from its particular color, and Fivizzano, with the ancient walls and the Printing Museum. And still, Pontremoli, with the splendid Piagnaro Castle, which houses the Museum of the Statue Stele, and the Duomo. Finally, between lush and thick woods there is Zeri, known for its gastronomy and Filattiera, where you can visit the parish of Sorano, a precious monument Romanesque with the impressive apse.
