Today it is one of the Chocolate Valley’s main centres with the workshop-sales outlet of Roberto Catinari who, in 1974, launched his chocolatier business in Tuscany after working in Switzerland for twenty years.

Not to be missed: The former hospice complex in Spedalino Asnelli, with the exterior of its Romanesque church covered in terracotta, and the ancient Church of San Niccolò, renovated in a 17th-century style.
