Barberino Val d'Elsa

On the border between Chianti and Valdelsa there is the territory of Barberino Val d'Elsa, in which we find sweet hills, vines, olive groves and secular cypresses, but also wilder zones. But the peculiarity of this place is represented by the small and numerous medieval villages on the hills, places full of history and legends. In the center of the town we find the Palace Pretorio, adorned by crests, and the Pieve of San Bartolomeo, that keeps in its inside, beyond to some frescoes of the 14th century representing the Annunciation, the panel with the Madonna with the Child, by the so-called Master of Barberino (14th century). Noteworthy is also the Chapel of San Michele Arcangelo, in the locality of Petrognano. Built in 1597, the chapel is a reproduction in scale of 1 to 8 of the dome of the Cathedral of Florence; it is on the place where the ancient city of Semifonte once rose; it was completely destroyed by the Fiorentini in 1202.
