This castle can be found halfway between Certaldo and the characteristic medieval village of Lucardo.

Perched on a hill it overlooks the stunning countryside of the Valdelsa and of the Val di Pesa. The castle is mentioned in a document dating back from 1020 and has been destroyed twice, in 1260 and 1313. The castle lost its military function during the Renaissance period and become a country residence for important Florentine families. Today it offers elegant tourist accommodation and is the perfect backdrop for weddings and events.
