A bit of history.....
The first known date in the history of the castle is July 25, 998, when the Marquis Ugo of Tuscany gave the church a wish to save the soul from the endless end of the year 1000. It was a very Benedictine monastery Important, rich and powerful on the ancient route of Via Francigena, a compulsory stage for pilgrimages to Rome.
Because of its militarily strategic position, it was destroyed in the 15th century by the war between Florence and Siena and later rebuilt in Neo-Gothic style in 1886.
Though after the rebuilding of the ancient structure is nothing but the cloister of the 11th century, still today the walls, the walkways, the belvedere and the crenellated towers keep the atmosphere and fascination of the Middle Ages unchanged.
Within a few steps, crossing the ancient cloister, you can reach the garden and the swimming pool (17x7) immersed in olive groves and dominated by the entrance tower.
