The tower is located on one of the routes of Via Francigena, the great pilgrimage route that united North Europe to Rome. The territory of Casaglia was crucial since ancient times, for the control of roads and traffic (from the top of the 238 metres of the hill it was possible to observe various stretches of the Via Francigena and the secondary roads connecting castles, churches and abbeys in the area). The silica-arid soil of the Casaglia area from the thirteenth century has proved to be ideal to the cultivation of a small flower, the crocus sativus from which the saffron is obtained, a spice that became the object of trade and contributed to the power of the medieval San Gimignano. San Gimignano is still crowned by its walls, characterized by its unique turreted skyline known all over the world. The proximity (5km) to the motorway Siena Florence and to all the services offered by the beautiful town of Poggibonsi make this place an attractive residential and tourist home. Distances: Poggibonsi (about 5 km), San Gimignano (about 6 km), Florence + airport (about 35 km), Siena (25 km), Volterra (30 km), Pisa + airport (50 km), the vineyards of the Chianti Classico (15 km), Castelfalfi (golf 18 holes) 32km.
