Hamlets, districts and squares
Castell’in Villa is a collection of farmhouses, dominated by a three storey medieval rectangular tower. Not far from the village there is a little church, first mentioned in 1176. In late XIII and early XIV century tithe lists, this church is mentioned as being the parsonage of S. Cristoforo. In the middle of the XIII century, Castell’in Villa belonged to Siena, whereas in the XIV century it became part of the Berardenga vicarage communities. In a document from 1825 the tower is mentioned as “palace”. Visitors to the village should also pay a visit to the nearby Virgin Mary Chapel, consecrated in 1801.
