The village of citrus trees
Nearby Montecatini Terme, Buggiano Castello is a very old village set out around Piazza Pretorio, where thirteenth century Palazzo Pretorio is located as well as the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Salute, originally a Benedictine monastery.
Its private gardens in which various citrus trees are grown because of the area’s special microclimate, are opened to the public every two years. The event is called La campagna dentro le mura, arranged in collaboration with several associations, among which FAI (Fondo per l’Ambiente Italiano); in occasion of the 2015 edition, the gardens open to visitors were nineteen. The average time to visit them was around 3 hours, and the owners are glad to welcome visitors and tell stories and features of the many botanical species. In the background, you can enjoy some live music played along the streets of the village.< Comeback to the article list
