Castiglion Ghinibaldi

Recorded since the 11th century as belonging to the Lambardi di Staggia family, the castle passed into the hands of the nearby Abbadia Isola in the following century.
During the course of the 13th century it became the property of Ghinibaldo di Saracino, the husband of Sapia dei Salvani, while in the 14th century the castle passed to the Piccolomini family.
Despite many restorations, the castle demonstrates its medieval origins with the size of the walls and the style of the many openings.
However, the overlapping arches in the internal courtyard and the doorway leading into it, as well as the brickwork church located alongside the fort, are the result of a sixteenth century restructuring.
