The intact medieval village home of Boccaccio
Located in the center of Valdelsa, Certaldo houses numerous buildings of historical, cultural and artistic interest.
The most interesting part of the town is certainly Certaldo Alto. The main artistic and architectural feature, which made it famous in Europe, is the perfect conservation of the medieval urban map with its narrow streets and small squares scattered here and there: Certaldo Alto has remained the same as it was developed in the Middle Ages.
Among the many things you can visit Casa Boccaccio, the residence of the famous writer that overlooks the main street of the village, the Museum of Sacred Art and the Museo Civico di Palazzo Pretorio.
