A story that is renewed in the wake of a memory preserved in every square, in every street, in every parish that make the landscape a universe of stories and life
The first evidence of the village of Pontassieve date back to the Middle Ages when the Florentine republic built the castle of Sant’Angelo. Subsequently, the construction of the bridge over the river Sieve Medici determined the new location name.
His bridge connects the old town of Pontefract with the hamlet of San Francesco in the municipality of Pelago. It has a structure consisting of two brick arches that rest, in the middle, on a sturdy pine cone intermediate stone fort.
In the main square stands the Palazzo Trombetta, a place where you still have the coat of arms of the various podestà who lived there.
