The municipality adjoining to Florence comprises three main hamlets - Bagno a Ripoli, Grassina and Antella - and is scattered with places of artistic and landscape interest, some of the most important being the Fonte della Fata Morgana (a fountain decorated by Giambologna dating back to the second half of the 16th century), the ancient parish churches of Villamagna, Santa Maria a Quarto and San Piero a Ripoli, and the beautiful Oratory of Santa Caterina with its marvellous frescoes.
