Splendid medieval village, the name of Anghiari is connected to a famous battle, the battle of Anghiari, fought by the Fiorentini versus the Milanesi, that took place in the plain below the town in 1440. Leonardo da Vinci wanted to paint this battle in Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, but unfortunately its fresco went lost, and we know it only through copies. Going up from the plain to the historical center, we find the Abbey of San Bartolomeo, built by the monks towards the year 1000 in a strategic point of the inhabited center. In Anghiari and in its hamlet there are interesting churches, among which we cite the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the Church of Sant'Agostino, the Church of the Cross. In the heart of the historical center, Taglieschi Palace is situated, it is seat of a Museum that gathers artistic works coming from palaces and churches of the area.
