Sasso Pisano

The urban structure of the town, despite the inevitable adaptations and the new buildings, retains its appearance of medieval fortress. The oldest inhabited nucleus, the Castle stands in a dominant position to the top of the Hill, at the eastern end of the entire village. The outer walls have remained strong over time. One example is the pitfall visible within the village, so extensive as to look like a gallery.
In the castle of Sasso Pisano is the church dedicated to Saint Bartholomew, a hexagonal building with original terracotta flooring, in times past Deanship. In the small chapel on the left side of the Church, of older age, there is preserved a painting of 1500 years, by an unknown artist, the Chapel, preserves the attic with original chestnut wood beams.
Adjacent to the Church is a medieval bell tower which still marks the time, with bells every 30 minutes.
