Sant’Alberto is a small town that lies in the middle of the unspoiled Po Delta Park nature reserve on the border with the Valleys of Comacchio, at approximately 14km from the city of Ravenna.
The main attraction of Sant’Alberto is Palazzone, a building erected in the first half of the 16th century by the Estense family and conceived as a military garrison. The palace is now home to the "Alfredo Brandolini" NatuRa Museum, that hosts a precious ornithological collection donated by the scientist Brandolini in the early 20th century, and many other finds from different donations.
Furthermore, in the Renaissance parish church of Sant'Alberto there is a group of important artworks which include the Crowning of the Virgin by Luca Longhi, Our Lady of Sorrows by Ballanti Graziani and a wooden cross.
