San Piero a Sieve

The ancient town of S.Piero a Sieve has developed around the church of S.Pietro since the 11th century, and today it is the smallest of Mugello area. In spite of this fact, in its territory there are many buildings of historical and religious interest, among which we remember the Fortress of San Martino, that was construct by Cosimo I Medici in 1569. The complex is situated on a height: its intent was to defend Florence and was equipped with different systems in order to resist to sieges. Very fascinating is also the Castle of Trebbio, a strange villa-fortress, built by the family Medici too, that dominates on the valley. Among the religious buildings we remember the Convent of Bosco ai Frati, dipped in the green, founded in the 8th century and comprising the church of San Bonaventura, and the very ancient Pieve di S.Pietro, dated 1018.
