Marciano della Chiana

Marciano della Chiana rises on a hill between vines and olive trees, and, with its 24 kmq, it is the smallest town of the Valdichiana. As all the valley, the area that today is Marciano was inhabited in Etruscan times, in fact the particular strategic position of Marciano (between the Val di Chiana and the Valle dell'Esse), joined to the strong vocation to agricultural exploitation, have made of it an important center since ancient times. The powerful castle rises in the middle of a pleasant countryside and, furrowed by ancient roads that intercrosses dominating immense plains between the two valleys. In the locality called Cesa there is the church of Santa Lucia and San Michele Arcangelo. In the town of Marciano instead we find the church of Santi Stefano and Andrea, restored from 1591, to whose inside is conserved a Madonna with the Child and Santi Giacomo and Cristoforo by Bartolomeo di Gatta (1486 approximately).
