Its name reveals its Etruscan-Roman origins but it became a place of strategic importance during the Middle Ages as a castle used to control the Val d’Ambra. It is worth stopping at the nearby Romanesque Pieve di Galatrona to see the font attributed to Luca della Robbia. Badia di San Pietro a Ruoti is one of the most important Camaldolese abbeys in the area of Arezzo both for its artistic content and spirituality.
The Middle Ages also re-emerge in the castles, such as the famous one in Cennina, with their characteristic use of materials (stone and brick) and design. In summer the courtyard of Cennina Castle becomes an open air theatre hosting concerts and important musical events.
