Vaglia

The territory of Vaglia has been inhabited since ancient ages. Today it is a graceful town, where there are several interesting things to see... first, we remember Villa Demidoff. This is the modern denomination of what remains of the Villa Medicea; it is situated in the locality of Pratolino. The villa of Medici family was demolished in 1822, and in 1872 a rich family of Russian origin, the Demidoff, bought the ruins and restructured the building. The park is one of the widest and most beautiful of the whole Tuscany, the most important english garden; in the park there are secular trees, among which oaks, cedars and chestnut trees, beyond to sculptures and fountains, particularly beautiful is the Fontana dell'Appennino. Also the Convento del Monte Senario, on the top of a mountain from where all the Mugello can be seen. The convent was built in 1234 by seven noble people from Florence, founders of the Order of the Servants of Maria, and therefore called the Seven founders; the church, the convent and the coves can be visited.
