Peccioli

Overview

The village of Peccioli lies on the top of a hill, along the Valdera and is a place that has managed to combine tradition and modernity. In the ancient centre one can admire elements of great architectural value, such as the parish church dedicated to San Verano and the Palazzo Pretorio, of medieval origin, which today houses the Museum of Russian Icons. But Peccioli is also a place of contemporary art, which intertwines with the signs of the past, creating a pleasant and fascinating balance. To embellish the village, penalised by the destruction of the medieval castle during the last war, internationally renowned artists have been hosted here since the early 1990s and have brought their works here, and today, strolling through the centre and the hamlets, one can admire very interesting installations. Art that fills the air, making Peccioli a special place.
