A route rich in historical interest is the one that has as its object the fascinating citadel-fortress of Terra del Sole. It starts from the entrance of the Baths and along the shaded Viale Marconi towards Terra del Sole. At the end of the avenue you cross the road and after the public weighbridge, turn right and then immediately left.
You enter the “Porta Fiorentina”, turned towards Florence, formerly defended by a drawbridge. Once you pass the arches of the entrance gallery, you enter the Medici citadel of Terra del Sole. The door is incorporated into the “Castello del Capitano”. Then we walk along the “Borgo Fiorentino” until we reach the vast “Piazza d’Armi” which overlooks the “Palazzo dei Commissari”, the “Palazzo dei Provveditori” and the “Chiesa di S. Reparata”. Go along the “Borgo Romano” arriving at “Castello del Governatore”. Incorporated to the castle is the “Porta Romana” which faces towards Romagna. On the way back, just outside the walls, turn right into Via della Biondina.
After about one kilometer on the left side, before the craft area, there are the remains of the ancient church of Santa Reparata. Continue to the bridge near the old furnace and then to Via delle Sorgenti returns to the village.
