Figline Valdarno is a medieval town, built at the end of the 12th century. Anyone staying there can easily and quickly reach beautiful cities of art or go into the lush Chianti countryside, to discover its hidden wonders.
The ancient Figline had a good 19 towers and 4 gates surrounding the old “market". Any traveller who, from the square, went down Via Castel Guineldi to reach Canto al Romano, would have come across the Casamaggiore dei Serristori building on the right, known by all as "La Casagrande". This building, which is half palace and half villa, was built in Figline Valdarno in 1392, by Ser Ristori, who became the Notary of the Signoria of Florence.
