Historic Sites Nightlife Parks
Canossa is a comune and castle town in Emilia-Romagna, famous as the site where Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV did penance in 1077, standing three days bare-headed in the snow, in order to reverse his excommunication by Pope Gregory VII. The Walk to Canossa is sometimes used as a symbol of the changing relationship between the medieval Church and State.Canossa has a population of 3,376, and borders the comuni of Casina, Castelnovo ne' Monti, Neviano degli Arduini, San Polo d'Enza, Traversetolo, Vetto, and Vezzano sul Crostolo. The town was formerly known as Ciano d'Enza, while Canossa was the name of only the castle, now in ruins, once belonging to Matilda of Tuscany, and nearby hamlet, which lie some 8 km east of the town. In 1992, however, the municipality and town were renamed Canossa after the most renowned few acres of its territory.Main sightsCanossa Castle was built before the middle of the 10th century by Adalbert Atto, son of Sigifred of Lucca.
