Castrum of Castelfranco di Sotto
Castelfranco di Sotto

Castelfranco di Sotto is a country having a typical medieval castle set up in the middle of the thirteenth century (1255). The four gates of the castle, square-shaped and made entirely of brick, were facing the old cores, towards the four cardinal points. In this way, the castle did not suffer more than the strife and struggles that have always raged in Valdarno, on the border between Florence, Lucca and Pisa.
In Ages, when the country had already become a free town, was built the boundary wall with sixteen towers.
