The Castle of Vicari – 12 km

Castello dei vicari Lari

The Castle of Vicari is located in the centre of the city of Lari, an antique medieval village, already inhabited in Etruscan times. The fortress, in existence from around the year 1000, enjoyed its maximum splendor in the centuries following the year 1400 as the Headquarters of the Florentine Vicariate. For more than four centuries the Lari Castle administered over a third of the actual province of Pisa. The Vicariate was abolished with the adhesion of the Grand Duke of Tuscany to the Reign of Italy, although a civil magistrates’ court remained in Lari until the end of the 1960’s. The Fortress is currently run by the “Il Castello” Cultural Association that deals with cultural and tourist re-evaluation, running tourist visits and organizing conferences and presentations.

The Castle of Vicari offers a wonderful viewpoint of the Tuscany’s landscape.
