Pontremoli takes up the most northern part of Tuscany. The town is situated in a valley surrunded by high hills, on one of the most ancient roads of pilgrimage, the Via Francigena, that starts in Canterbury and arrives to Rome; the village dues its name to "Ponte tremulus" (shaky bridge) that was on the river Magra. Today, Pontremoli is a city rich in culture and history. Beyond to the castle of the Piagnaro, dated to the years around 1000, part of a great system of defense together with the towers of Castelnuovo, Cacciaguerra and Seratti, and today seat of the Museum delle statue-stele (monuments made of stone), the tourist can visit the church of San Nicoḷ, that conserves an ancient wooden cross, the church of San Geminiano, patron of Pontremoli, the cathedral dedicated to Santa Maria del Popolo, founded in 1630, whose dome, together with the bell tower, dominates the profile of the town.
