A special experience that both young and old can enjoy is the Fortezza Medicea di Poggio Imperiale, a popular attraction in the area.
In the footsteps of the Knights Templar
The Castello della Magione originally belonged to the Knights Templar and was in 1979 the newly founded Order of Catholic laity, the Order of the poor knights "Militia Templi" transferred, where it still serves as the headquarters. The Castello della Magione offers accommodation to pilgrims on the way of the Franks during their pilgrimage to Rome. The chapel "San Giovanni in Jerusalem" is worth a visit, in the partially preserved Romanesque castle. A unique opportunity for you too. Get up a little earlier in your holiday home in Tuscany and visit the fair in the venerable chapel.
Stroll and stroll through the streets
After the Second World War, Poggibonsi developed into a major trading center for wine, glasses and furniture, the latter being produced in Poggibonsi. Make an excursion to the weekly markets from your apartment or holiday home in Tuscany or stroll through the many small boutiques.
