Overview

The Badia castle was probably built during the invasion of the barbarians as a place of defense for the local population. The first documentary evidence dates from July 25, 983, showing the donation of the castle, from the annexed church of San Michele and the numerous other properties, built by Ugo, count of Tuscany, to the Abbott Bononio of the Camaldolesi monks. Only the cloisters of the ancient monastery from the 11th Century still remain, which are visible in the southern part of the castle.
