Description
This small fortified hamlet, mentioned since 1218, maintains its environmental characteristics, squeezed between Mount Novella and Mount Arno, facing with its two massive towers the bottom of the Tresinaro valley.
Croveglia rises amongst a very charming landscape and the buildings are between jutting walls. The stone constructions with sloping paths and narrow windows evoke medieval times.
towards the south the small valley is closed by the stratified walls of Mount Santa Maria.
The style of the tower houses is attributable to the 16th century, as is also a fresco in a niche you can see on the northern side.
The hamlet is perhaps a consequence of a fortified garrison of Matildic times, belonging to the chain of castles which flanked the upper part of the Tresinaro torrent.
The defensive needs are demonstrated by a raised portal, now bunged, visible on the side of the tower.
