Lastra a Signa

Lastra a Signa is a little city near Florence. It was created by Romans and it  has become important in the Middle Ages for its tactical position and used as a defense by the Florentine Republic. 


To remember the importance of the time, the old town is enclosed in the walls made in the fifteenth century and viewed even by Brunelleschi


The medieval walls are in good condition and they are  interspersed with seven towers and three gates. Within the wallsthere is the castle of Lastra with inside the church of Santa Maria alla Lastra.


Even outside the city walls Lastra a Signa offers many places of interest with churches, villas and castles, and in particular the Church of San Martino in Gangalandi, located in the homonymous village. The surroundings on the hills of Lastra are rich in woods and pine forests with a wonderful view of the valley of the Arno river. 


To visit is the castle of Malmantile, founded as a military outpost along the road to Pisa, that houses an amazing medieval festival during the summer.
