Capannoli is a delightful village of medieval origins that is found in the valley of the Era River.
The town was founded under the jurisdiction of the Counts of Gherardesca, who erected a castle around which the community of Capannoli started to form.
The wonderful Villa Baciocchi is worth a visit: in late-Baroque style with its botanical park that is a jewel in which you can admire 160 different types of exotic and secular plants.
Here, every year since 1960 the National Bird Exhibition is held. Furthermore Villa Baciocchi houses the Natural History Museum. Also of great interest is the late-Gothic style Sanctuary of the Santissima Annunziata, the Villa della Torre and the bell tower of St. Peter.
For lovers of nature and open air excursions, Capannoli offers a wide choice of routes in greenery along the banks of the Era River.
