Where we are
Anghiari: west of the upper Tiber, on the slopes of the bowl of hills which encircles the Valley, Anghiari's older quarter preserves its pure medieval character. A fine street on a steep gradient and a square lined with building of noble design were added in the 16th century, beyond the fortified walls. In the Badia church, romanesque in style and octagonal in plan, and in the medieval church of Sant'Agostino and Palazzo Comunale priceless works of art are found. The 6th-century church of Santo Stefano at the foot of the hill is one of the oldest in the region.
