The fortified village of Gargonza stands in the middle of dense woods a short distance away. The tower, entrance gateway, and small square overlooked by the parish church dedicated to Saints Tiburzio and Susanna, constitutes the historic 14th-century centre.
Gargonza Castle is just one of the many Tuscan castles with a long history. Already part of Arezzo as a fief of the Ubertini Counts, in medieval times it was the subject of disputes between the Guelphs and Ghibellines, like almost all the forts in the area. In fact, Dante Alighieri also passed through here.
Today, Gargonza is an important agritourism center, the ideal setting for organizing weddings, ceremonies and meetings.
