Scarperia (Tuscany)

Scarperia is one of the most interesting historical centres of Mugello, an inland valley in Tuscany. The heart of the fortified settlement is the Palazzo dei Vicari, a fourteenth-century residence, severe and turreted on the side facing the square, and fortress at the back. Other interesting buildings are the Saints Jacopo and Philip Church, founded by Friar Napoleon of Galluzzi in 1326 and the Oratory of the Madonna di Piazza, dating back to 1320.
