IN THE HEART OF AN UNKNOWN TUSCANY

April 24, 2018

A short walk from our Inn, the ancient village of Castiglione del Terziere stretches along a ridge on a hill 1000 feet high, in the middle of Lunigiana, a valley that has been crossed by armies, pilgrims, and merchants for centuries, on their way to Rome from the North.

Here, castles have grown like mushrooms (more than 160, according to the ancient codes; about 20 are left standing). They were built to control estates and to check that no one passed without paying a toll.
