Certaldo, interesting city of art, was the place of birth of Giovanni Boccaccio, one of the most celebrated italian poets; it is a city that, for its historical tradition and its artistic beauty, must be visited. In the town there are many things to see and many places to visit: beyond to the Pretorio Palace, constructed in the 12th century, (in the entrance hall many crests are conserved; in the Room of the Knight a Madonna with the Child -1489- and a Crocifissione -1478-) there is the Church of Santi Jacopo and Filippo, erected in the 13th century, of Romanesque style, inside has the mortal remains of Beata Giulia Della Rena and of Boccaccio. In the nearby cloister there is the entrance of the Museum of Arte Sacra, rich in works of art. In the outskirtses we find the ruins of the castle of Pogni, also known as "Pogna", that represented one of the most powerful castles of the family Alberti, the medieval lords of the Val d'Elsa. Of the imposing castle remains only a tower and some rests of the old palace.
