Santa Maria a Monte is located in the province of Pisa along the path of the river Arno. The city is only 30 kilometers from Pisa
where you can go and eat ice cream or sip coffee under the wonderful Tower of Pisa in Piazza dei Miracoli whenever you want! Also Lucca is about 30 miles away and is one of the most visited cities in Tuscany thanks to its walls longer than 4 kilometers. The distance between Florence and Santa Maria a Monte is 57 miles, but the main town in Tuscany is easily accessible through a fast road in about 45 minutes.
Santa Maria a Monte is located in the plains even though the town has developed on a small hillock. The altitude is 56 meters above sea level. The castle of Santa Maria a Monte is documented since the year 1000, but in the fourteenth century the Florentines, having conquered the city, decided to build three boundary walls around it. Numerous were the towers that were destroyed though. The remains of the defensive walls create a striking spiral effect in the city and make understand how the castle was important in the Middle Ages.
In the historic center of Santa Maria a Monte we suggest going to visit the Church of St. John the Evangelist and the Virgin Mary Assumption consecrated in 1466, and the small chapel of the Madonna delle Grazie, built as a thanksgiving to God by the local population for having escaped the plague that had instead hit the cities and neighboring areas. Not far from Santa Maria a Monte, the Astronomical Observatory of Tavolaia that, especially in summer, is open to the public for events and evenings looking at the stars.
