The Valgraziosa

The Valgraziosa is a vast basin within the Monte Pisano with natural terraces and olive trees.
The small towns of Calci, Montemagno, Tre Colli, Nicosia and many others are sprawled around several water streams and the old mills and olive presses that were build along the banks are still visible today. This area also abounds in ancient monuments and archeological sites – the Pieve in Calci , a Romanesque church dating back to the 11th century and just a few yards away the magnificent Certosa di Pisa, a Carthusian monastery built in 1366, which contains two museums – the Natural History Museum of the University of Pisa and the National Museum of Certosa Monumentale .
The area of the Valgraziosa is ideally situated as a starting point for visiting the entire region of Tuscany, thanks to its proximity to the cities of Pisa, Florence and Lucca, full of art and history but it also offers the tranquil atmosfere of the small country villages with its hill trails and hiking paths
