Tavarnelle Val di Pesa

Tavarnelle Val di Pesa -The village of Tavarnelle has Roman origins which is named after the ancient taverns offering accommodation and refreshment located along the road which linked Florence to Siena and thence to Rome.

The present town has a quite recent urban aspect as a result of the union of the three medieval villages: Tavarnelle, Mocale and Borghetto.

The territory of Tavernelle, like the entire Chianti district, has a particularly rich heritage of rural building: churches, oratories, chapels, villas and farms.

In the town itself, of particular interest is the church of Santa Lucia al Borghetto, a rare example of local Gothic architecture. In the immediate vicinity, the interior of the Romanesque parish church of San Pietro in Bossolo contains interesting works of art. The Museo di Arte Sacra has been set up in the clergy house: among the paintings displayed, the most precious is a thirteenth-century panel portraying the Madonna and Child attributed to Meliore.

Unfortunately few traces remain of the medieval constructions as the village was frequently pillaged during that period.
