Le colline di Lastra a Signa

The hills of Lastra a Signa

A ring route on the hills south of Lastra a Signa, that allows you to linger over some of the oldest churches of the Lastra area  while reaching the hamlet of Malmantile, with its 15th century walls.

From the church of Santa Maria a Castagnolo you get to the Madonna of the Cough tabernacle, then proceed towards Poggio Vittorio, walking among vines and olive trees. After a wood you take via di San Romolo, up to the so-called Mulettino tabernacle, finally arriving to the church of San Romolo, from which you can enjoy the sweeping view on the whole surrounding area.

After going back on your tracks until you reach the cemetery, you take the paved road leading to Malmantile, worth stopping to discover the fortified castle.

Continuing the walk towards Lastra you go down the trail on the left in the direction of Le Sughere, passing near the Lecceto hermitage, with wonderful views up to the Monte Morello mountain.

Carrying on downhill you enter Lastra a Signa passing under the old city door, called Portone di Baccio.
