Overview
More
On the hill of Semifonte, surrounded by olive groves and and vineyard, you can see today only one building: the Chapel of San Michele Arcangelo, built in the late 16th century in honor of the inhabitants of the Semifonte Castle, destroyed by Folrentines in 1202. Ita uniqueness is due do tact that it duplicates on a small scale the Brunelleschi’s Florence Cathedral dome.
