Licciana Nardi

Tavernelle is located along the road that leads to Licciana Nardi toward the Lagastrello Pass, on the right side of the Taverone stream at the foot of Mount Poreta. This village is very picturesque and visitor’s can admire its portals, sandstone windows and galleries. The town’s name is probably derived from the fact that the village was once home to many taverns, as it was located along the ancient Via del Sale or Linari route. The town hosts the Church of San Rocco. This structure dates back to the 1500s and it was built by the Antonetti family. After World War II it was declared a parish church. The village winds along a single street which mainly hosts sixteenth century buildings. The town also hosts myriad handicraft shops. Inside the village, you’ll find a tower house built in 1516, which bears an engraving that specifies the date of its foundation and builder, Alfonso Saffi. At the end of July, the town annually sponsors a medieval market and Trout Festival.
