Anghiari is a splendid Medieval town on a hill between the river Sovara and the Tiber valley. Its name is linked to a famous battle (Battle of Anghiari) in 1440, fought on the plain of Anghiari and painted by Leonardo in the hall of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
The Borghetto, above the plain, was first of all a Medieval settlement surrounded by imposing 15th century walls with its medieval tower of the Campano and the Badia, an old stone church founded by the Camaldolese monks around the year 1000. Palazzo Taglieschi, the Museo Statale is in the centre of the town and houses important pieces and paintings (a polychrome wood Madonna by Jacopo della Quercia, terracotta from the Della Robbia school and a 16th century organ “organo positivo” that still works).
In Spring the streets of the old town of Anghiari are animated with visitors who come to browse in the little shops and stalls set up for the Art and Craft Fair.
