San Miniato lies in the heart of Tuscany about 40 km from Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Pistoia, and just a little further away from Volterra, Sienna, San Gimignano, Livorno. For this reason, in fact, it has the nickname "the city of the XX miles". San Miniato is placed at the centre of a flourishing industrial area given over to the production of leather goods; it is a typical example of the artistic and social history, which can still be read in its structures, of the smaller towns in Tuscany.
Its origins date back to the Etruscan-Roman epoch: this is attested to by necropolis finds, the tombstones, marble sculptures, bronzes and mosaics discovered during excavations. The historic centre preserves medieval-borough characteristics with the Cathedral in its centre and at the highest point, as well as the Episcopal palace, the imperial palace and the fortress.
There are many testimonies of art and history throughout the San Miniato: the Monastery and Conservatory of Santa Chiara, the Church of SS. Annunziata, Palazzo Grifoni e Formichini, the San Martino complex, the Church of Saints Jacopo and Lucia, the Town Hall, the Church of Misericordia and piazza Bonaparte.
