Walking in Vinci: Poggio dello Zollaio - Trail n. 12b

The trail starts from Piazza Leonardo da Vinci and ends near the Mulino della Doccia mill

The walk, short and easily done, goes up a hill next to the hamlet, called precisely Poggio di Marradino. From the top you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Conti Guidi Castle, seat of the Museo Leonardiano , and the bell tower of the Santa Croce Church, which still retains the 15th century baptismal font where Leonardo was baptised.

Along the route you find:

  • The Androne Ciofi, an ancient passage from the hamlet to the countryside next to which is, still today, the building, once a tavern, that one of Leonardo's brothers, Giovanni, rented
  • A section of the old town mill, run by Leonardo's uncle, Francesco
  • The Mulino della Doccia, an ancient mill already existing at the time of Leonardo, who drew its hydraulic mechanism in one of the pages of the Atlantic Codex
