The "Clock Tower" in Piazza Cavour

Borgo San Lorenzo town centre is the most interesting start for your tour. Two gates welcome you to the town: Fiorentina and Orologio, part of the ancient walls built in 1351. A visit to San Lorenzo Parish Church, built in 941 houses excellent works of art, such as: the Madonna attributed to Giotto, a panel of the Crucifix of the Giotto school, the Madonna on the Throne with Child attributed to Agnolo Gaddi, and the Virgin and the Saints Francis and Dominic by Matteo Rosselli. The apse was frescoed by Galileo Chini. To the right of the church we find a lovely polychrome terracotta tabernacle produced by the Fornaci Chini.

From 2017, Borgo San Lorenzo is appointed "Città della Ceramica", official approval from Ministero delloSviluppo Economico.

Not far from the city centre, we find the Oratorio del Santissimo Crocifisso dei Miracoli, built to hold a painted wooden Crucifix left there in 1400 by German pilgrims fleeing the plague.

Villa Pecori Giraldi houses the Chini Museum, a permanent collection of masterpieces by the artist Galileo Chini and his family, the Chini Contemporary, which hosts temporary exhibits of contemporary art, and the Kids Museum, an interactive area for families

On the hills that surround Borgo San Lorenzo is the Museo della Civiltà Contadina di Casa d’Erci, a farm house was restored and furnished using period pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. Before reaching the Museum is the Mulino ad acqua Faini (Faini water mill), built in the 15th century.

The Mulino ad acqua Margheri (Margheri water mill) located in Madonna dei Tre Fiumi, built in roughly 845, is still in perfect working condition. Visitors are welcome to view the grinding process and to buy wholesome wheat flour, corn flour or chestnut flour. On the opposite side of the road stands an Oratory, built roughly in 1578. The Colla di Casaglia Pass is not far off, and from it run a number of trails through the Giogo Casaglia Forestry complex or down through chestnut groves to the town of Ronta. The trails are suited for both trekking and MTB.
