Rocca di Castellina

A military architecture's example

Rocca di Castellina

The first historical remains, relative to the Rocca di Castellina, date back to around the eleventh century which described it as a Castello del Trebbio's possessions' advanced fortification, to which Castellina in Chianti belonged.

When the village became part of the territory of Florence, became one of Chianti's terzieri and because of its outpost location and borderland was also the scene of constant clashes.

The fortress is majestically, with its towers and the formwork of the wall, where you can take a breathtaking view over the Chianti's hills, which extends from Elsa Valley. The fortress can be visited internally because it hosts the museum of territory, often it is used as a location for weddings.
