San Miniato and its surrounding area represent an insight of Tuscany, where a modern development merges with old traditions a millenary history and great artistic heritage, and all of this in the middle of landscapes where people are still living from day to day. Architectural and artistic treasures, which are mostly stored in the museum network, characterized the old town centre, which overlooks the typical Tuscan countryside. In the wide open country which borders the Arno river in the north, we can find the modern urban centres, which are connected by a close network of streets and roads as well as the productive activities, which are mainly based on the tannery industry and the manufacturing of leather and hide. If we glance to the south we can see the large area of Valdegola, which covers two thirds of the area with its hills and woodlands. It is beautiful countryside, where you can still breathe in the old rustic culture, with thousands of ways which lead into woodlands that are centuries-old and ancient parish churches, where the ground hides more of treasures of San Miniato: its white truffle.
