What to see in the village of Giglio Castello
Around the medieval village of Giglio Castello you will be able to appreciate its historical beauties.
Already the main entrance, with three doors, decorated with the Medici coat of arms, testifies to the period in which the island had to protect itself from the attack of pirates arriving from the sea.
From here begins the path of the walkways, along the surrounding walls, which winds between loopholes and towers up to the Church of S. Pietro Apostolo (15th century). Inside are the relics of San Mamiliano and the “Christ of Ivory”, considered the most important work on the island. Continue towards Piazza XVIII Novembre, from which the Rocca Pisana (XII century) is visible, you will be at the highest point of the village.
For an equally panoramic view, take a walk outside the walls, from which you can admire the islands of Giannutri, Corsica and Elba.
