Castiglion Fiorentino is an ancient village, very popular among the Etruscans and during the Roman era, which has kept its medieval walls almost entirely intact, dominated over by the Cassero fortress. It’s no coincidence that in the village piazza archaeologists have discovered a sacred area dating back to the 5th century BCE.

In the Pinacoteca, or art gallery, located in the Church of Sant’Angelo, precious pieces of jewellery from the 13th century and some fine paintings by Margarito, Taddeo Gaddi, Bartolomeo della Gatta and Giorgio Vasari are conserved.
