Nature dominates everywhere here, with landscapes that have been beloved by poets and painters alike. San Godenzo is also the perfect starting point for going to a fairytale-like place: let yourself be charmed by the rushing waters of the Acquacheta Waterfalls, reachable via an easy trail.
The mountains that surround the town and its hamlets all exceed 900 meters in altitude. The most important of these is Monte Falterona, which has been a sacred mountain since the Etruscans.
In the hamlet of Castagno di Sant’Andrea, you can find the Monte Falterona Visitors’ Centre, home to the Andrea del Castagno Virtual Museum, an exhibition leading visitors along the scenery that fascinated the painter during his lifetime.
The centre is also one of the 11 gateways to the Foreste Casentinesi National Park, home to majestic trees and trails that wind through the shade, where visitors can observe the animals that run free. Along with its natural beauty, the territory is also marked by the skilled workmanship which can be explored along the Civiltà del Castagno trail, introducing visitors to the traditions tied to the cultivation of chestnuts and rural life in the area.
Characteristic churches and parish churches are scattered across the hamlets, such as the church of Santa Maria all’Eremo.
