Il Cassero Fortress - Monte San SavinoIl Cassero is the ancient fortress of Ajalta. Nowadays, from the square, we can see only its facade. It is a three story building with a rectangular perimeter, built on a square base, with sloped walls, a sturdy dungeon and four angular watch towers (some parts of these structures can be seen only from inside the Cassero). The merlon has been partially rebuilt.

Gargonza Castle - Monte San SavinoLocated on the top of a hill near Palazzuolo, Gargonza is situated seven kilometers from the centre of Monte San Savino.
The old village of  Gargonza belonged to the Ubertini, but in 1285 was conquered by the people of Arezzo, allies of the Ghibellini , lead by the bishop Vescovo Guglielmino. In 1307 the army of Florence laid siege to its castle but it was fortunately saved.

The "Cistern"

Posted in Edifici

Those staying in Monte San Savino should definitely not miss a visit to the recently restored 16th century Cistern.

Thanks to the metal walkway that crosses it, it can be visited inside (free admission) every day.

Built both with mixed material, both stones and bricks, it consists of two naves each of mt. 26.00x5.00 covered with a barrel vault, connected to each other by four large openings with a rounded arch structure.

Outside, under the two niches, you can see the holes in the water dispensing spouts that have now disappeared.

Palazzo Pretorio and Tower

Posted in Edifici

Palazzo Pretorio and Tower - Monte San SavinoThe fourteenth century Magistrate’s Palace is the most ancient, noble, public building in Monte San Savino. It holds the tower of the town which is 30 meters high. We think the Perugini family  built it in 1339 when they began ruling Monte San Savino; in fact they put their coat of arms with the griffon on its facade (later it was removed). Formerly the Palace and its offices extended as far as the Piazza di Monte as it is called today. The Florentine podestà representatives and some deputies of the Lords of Monte San Savino administrated  the penal and civil justice from here with their “family” (XVI and XVII century).
