Bibbona - It was a middle age castle on the hills of the countryside of Livorno, property of Santa Maria Abbey in Vico Masio and later of Lucca Cathedral. In the XII century, the counts Della Gherardesca became owner of the castle, which was fortified. When it came under the jurisdiction of the town of Pisa, the counts got the vicarship. Bibbona keeps its original old shape: it consists of a sequence of circles, joined by narrow lanes and stairways. Nature lovers, besides artistic and historical works, can visit the national park Macchia della Magona’: a green sea stretched for more than 1600 hectares. Pieve di San Ilario, which was built in the XI century, is an important parish church in the old town, full of narrow lanes and little squares.
Comune Vecchio has its seat in a great middle age building, which hosts the rich historical records of the town. The Renaissance church Santa Maria della Pietŕ, which was built at the end of 400, makes the village entrance wonderful. Many traditional and folkloric events, like the historical procession and the Palio delle Botti, take place in this enchanting village every year. Bibbona is situated along the wine street, an important area for the production of precious table wine, like Sassicaia and Ornellaia of Bolgheri. The wine street, immersed in the Tuscan countryside, gives also the possibility to enjoy the typical products of the region, like extra virgin olive oil, cheese, fruit and vegetables.
