Montecarlo is a small village in the province of Lucca standing on the top of a low hill (about 160 m above sea level). From its position overlooks the fertile Valdinievole, where there are many greenhouses of flowers, and the countryside of Lucca planted with vines and olive trees. The same village of Montecarlo is particularly renowned for its production of fine wine DOC and is crossed by the Wine Route of Lucca and Versilia. Montecarlo was officially founded in 1333 by the future Emperor Charles IV, to which it owes its name. The town was built originally on top of the hill where stands the Fortress of Cerruglio, strategic fortification in the wars of the fourteenth century between Florence, Lucca and Pisa. From this castle Castruccio Castracani directed his troops to victory in the historic Battle of Altopascio of 1325. The fortress was enlarged first by Lucca and then after the final conquest by the Florentines during the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The old town is still surrounded by walls and isolated hilltop. Dominating the landscape is the complex of the fortress consisting of a large tower of semi-circular shape and two massive square towers: the Tower of the Apparition and the Tower of Santa Barbara. The facilities are connected by thick walls to form a fortification impregnable from the vague triangular shape. Of particular interest in the village is also the Church of Sant'Andrea and its adjacent bell tower dating back to the fourteenth century. The structure has been restored several times over the centuries. Nearby Montecarlo extend vast vineyards and olive groves among which run nature trails suitable for all ages. Particularly right for a hike in the nature of the place is the path that arrives in locality San Martino, here is an old oak tree that has more than 500 years.|MontecarloBed and Breakfast a Montecarlo
