Castello di Porciano

Perched on a hill, a medieval village surrounds this castle, built around the year 1000 for one of the first Guidi counts. It has preserved part of its old perimeter walls as well as an imposing tower. On the ground floor is a museum of rustic art and upstairs is a collection of ceramics discovered during archaeological excavations.
