At the begin it was just a village raised by Marturi Castle, very powerful Benedictine Abbey, taking advantage from the Francigena Route.

Ita former name was Poggio Bonizioand nowadays there are just the ruins of the big Medicean Fortress builted by Lorenzo il Magnifico and accomplished by Sangallo School.

It was never really finished, anyway what we can still shows once again the quantity and the importance of the architectural works in this little valley after Etruscan and Roman times.
