Borgo di Castiglion Fionrentino
Pieve della Sassaia di Rigutino
Castiglion Fiorentino is a small village at approximately 5 km from the farm Il Cipresso.

Defended on a hill it has maintained all its fascination intact.
Encircled from its it walls still integral and complete, it encloses many alleys and historical monuments to visit and to discover.

The country was inhabited in remote ages but we have testimonies of a stable settlement from the Etruscan age around year 500 BC.

Inside of its it walls can be admired the church of Saint Francesco with its magnificent cloister of the 1600 AD, the Old Church (16th century), the Communal Pinacoteca and Palazzo Pretorio, in which Etruscan finds are exposed.

A beautiful walk following the walls carries to the tower of the Cassero from which going up you can admire a total view of the country.

The gardens in front of the tower offer a magnificent view on the valdichiana until the Lago Trasimeno between Umbria and Tuscany.

But above all don't you miss the occasion to sip a good wine under the Vasariane loggias (those in the photo) in front of the communal palace. The original arcade was planned by the architect, carver, painter and historian Vasari, it is a true jewel.
You will notice that the columns of the porch have suffered the insults of the time and in the centuries they have been folded towards outside.
Moreover at the center of the arcade there is a sort of balcony that views on the Val of Chio from which it seems to be able to fly.
