Interesting Facts:

Loggia, the top floor of the San Giovanni building, commands a breathtaking view of the valley below.

The building appears to have been originally three surveillance towers, erected by the Longobards around 700 AD after they invaded Tuscany. The center tower was the oldest and appears to have fallen, in part, during Berardenga times.

Looking back from the castle walls a keen eye can still detect the cornerstones of the two flanking towers and a line of demarcation where the top part was reconstructed.

Later the lower part was roofed over to provide an attic space for raising silkworms, pigeons and chickens, and for drying ears of corn, garlic and onions for the winter, while pigs, cows and oxen were kept in the barn downstairs (Fondi), and the contadino and his large family lived on the middle floor.
