Montecatini Val di Cecina

Montecatini Val di Cecina and its surrondings has a lot to offer.



The history of Montecatini Val di Cecina can be traced back before Roman times when it was an Etuscan settlement. When the first Roman armies came the valley at Montecatini Val di Cecina was used for a military outpost and camp. The Castle of Montecatini, originally called Castrum Montis Leonis, was built in 960 by Filippo Belforti to stand against German invaders lead by Otto I. In the 11th century, Montacatini was administered from the Community of Gabbreto. In 1351, it came under the control of Volterra and in 1452, Montecatini Val di Cecina became part of the Republic of Florence to which it belonged until the unification of Italy in 1861.

The church dedicated to St Blaise (San Biagio) was built around 1356 under the patronage of Ugolino Guducci and Ciullo Barletti. Between 1463 and 1467, the bell tower and the choir were added. Nicola Nieri of Montecatini commissionned a Siennese painter for the frescose of the choir. Between 1514 and 1576, construction of canon's quarters led to sealing of the original facade. Flanking the main altar are two marble angels, called "ciechini", attributed to Mino da Fiesole. In the niches above the choir are two terracotta statues by the studio of Della Robbia, bepicting Saints Blaise and Sebastian. In 1787, with the deconsecration of the Oratory of Camporciano, the statue of the Madonna di Camporciano was moved here

It is a 14th century palace, with beautiful facade, pointed arches resting on elegant Ionic columns. The palace served as the Town Hall until 1956. Today it houses the archives and mining museum.
