Cigoli Cigoli


At the Pieve di San Giovanni di Corazzano (Parish Church of St. John) there are rests of a national monument and classic example of rural Romanesque architecture. It dates back to the 12th century and with its distinct red terracotta colour, combines in its marble facade Roman ruins from the Classical Age taken from the pre-existing colony, the ancient Roman settlement of Quaratiana. The hills surrounding these sites are worked by farmhouses that used to grow tobacco, some of those are still working.
