nestled on a cypress-lined hill
Leaving the SR69 and going on the SP14 towards Miemo, you’ll find Casaglia. The small “borgo” has interesting architectural and urban features.
Make sure to visit the church of Pieve San Giovanni Battista, which is only open during mass times, and the renovated castle with its towers and crenellations.
The first written documentation of Casaglia dates back to 115 a.D., when the Bishop of Volterra bought half of Count Ugo’s rights on the area for 50 lire.
