Throughout its history, and because of its strategic position, Premilcuore has often been forced to repel attacks and offensives: it was Florentine from the end of the 14th century but was exposed to the aims of the Po Valley potentates, so even today, despite the years that have passed, the building fabric is studded with stretches of walled curtain walls, high towers, gates, battlements and brackets.
In the historic centre, close to the perimeter of the castle and located on a bend in the Rabbi river, you should see the Briccolani Buildings, now home to an antiques shop, andGiannelli of wealthy local aristocrats, as well as the parish church of S. Martino all'Oppio in late Renaissance style.
The village is the gateway to the Casentino Forests, Mount Falterona and Campigna National Park, with a
visitor centre that is very well organised in which the Crinale Romagnolo Fauna Museum is found. The evocative natural setting lends itself to hikes and walks, such as the one leading to the Mengozzi and Biondi water mills, which are active and can be visited, and the one at Castel dell 'Alpe, a very small, fortified rural village, permanently inhabited by a few people.
