Castelnuovo Berardenga was born in the vast territory of Berardenga that since the tenth century was property of descendants of a dynasty of Frankish lineage, headed by Count Berardo. However, it was Siena who founded Castelnuovo. In fact, in 1366, the General Council of Siena approved the erection of "Castel Nuovo", in a strategic military position on the borders of the Sienese countryside. The village is divided into two parts: the Upper Town, the one of the Castle, and the Lower Town, the one of the village down to Siena, where there is a public square and a wide street. Starting from the second half of the eighteenth century, mainly on the initiative of the Counts Chigi Saracini, the urban development took place.
The Association "Eroica Ciclismo d'Epoca" organizes "L'EROICA": a cycling tour on mainly dirt roads. It reproduces settings and scenes of pre-war cycling. The route of "L'Eroica" runs along some of the most beautiful roads in the area of Chianti Senese, Valdarbia and Valdorcia. But, the best are definitely the white roads: still existing roads that have remained unchanged, which will bring you back to the atmosphere of past times. The "long" route is 205 km long and is entirely marked with road signs, made in collaboration with the Province of Siena and the Agency for Tourism of Siena. This signage consists of both road signs, to indicate the right direction at intersections, and mileage tables, with progressive mileage and distances to next towns. The signage also indicates the 135 km long "average" route.
ART & NATURE
The Chianti Sculpture Park offers its visitors a very special experience. In the heart of the Sienese Chianti, in an uncontaminated wood of holm oaks and holm oaks, numerous artists of international prestige coming from all five continents challenged their creativity and style and realized impressive sculptures of contemporary art. Each individual sculpture is site-specific, meaning that it was proposed by the artist after visiting the forest. This ensures that the works of art and nature, trees, sounds, colors, light and every other element of the forest are totally in harmony. In fact, here the work of man does not tend to overpower nature, but to integrate and enhance it. The Chianti Sculpture Park has recently opened to visitors and is already an essential stop for anyone who wants to enjoy the pleasure of a walk in nature and admire fascinating works of art. It is an unique experience.
The toponym of Monteaperti has been known since 1023 when it was the name of a castle owned by the Berardenghi family, located in the present Monteapertaccio, about one kilometer away. The fame of its name is linked to the famous Battle fought in the plain between the Arbia and the Malena. On September 4, 1260 the hill was the scene of a bloody battle between the Guelph part of Florence, led by Bocca degli Abati, and the Ghibelline Siena whose troops had joined those of Manfredi of Swabia and the Florentine exiles led by Farinata degli Uberti. The two cities, always in conflict for the supremacy of the territory, faced each other on the battlefield on the banks of the river Arbia. So bloody was the clash and so many soldiers were killed as to remain in the words of Dante Alighieri in the famous canto dell'Inferno: «[...]Lo strazio e 'l grande scempio/ che fece l'Arbia colorata in rosso,/ tal orazion fa far nel nostro tempio.» (Canto X, 85) Still today, on the top of the town from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Arbia valley, there is a memorial stone in memory of the bloody battle and the dramatic massacre.Contact us for more informations
