Aulla

Aulla rises near the border with Liguria. The town is situated in a strategic position, near the confluence of the torrent Aulella in the rver Magra, where the valley is narrow, closed by the surrounding hills. For these reasons Aulla is a natural passage, since ancient times (the town is on the Via Francigena) until to our days. The history of Aulla starts in the year of foundation of the abbey of San Caprasio, 884. Near the abbey, some archaeological excavations has brought to light many objects. The city of Aulla is dominated by the hill of the Brunella and its fortress. It is a wonderful example of military architecture of the first half of the 16th century. Powerful construction, today it is seat of the Natural History Museum of Lunigiana. In the Fortress there is a graceful garden from which we can admire the splendid view of Appennines and of Alpi Apuane.
