The Tuscany region
The Ancient town of Barga (Tuscany), captures the essence of Tuscany - pastel, red-roofed houses, historic palaces, cafes and restaurants serving exquisite local cuisine. It’s dominated by the fine cathedral, which houses have an excellent marble pulpit and some works of the Della Robbia school.An important centre of the Garfagnana and a pearl of Tuscany, it has wonderful views of the whole area and the town itself is a charming network of narrow streets, archways and winding stairways.
Barga stands right above an alluvial plain known as Pian Grande and crossed by two torrents. The town originally had three gates, but today only two remain, the Porta Reale and the Porta Macchiaia; they both have guardhouses and open towards Piazza del Fosso, so called because of the moat that used to surround the walls.
The historic town centre lies at the foot of a fortified hillock known as Arringo, Barga’s small Acropolis: here a large open space surrounded by high walls contains the Romanesque duomo of St. Christopher and the Palazzo Pretorio. The walls which are made of roughly hewn local stone are vertical and crowned in some portions by patrol balconies projecting inwards. Barga played a role as political centre of the Medici within the Serchio valley and controlled one of the main river crossings along the valley floor, in historical times an important route of communication in a politically complex environment divided between Lucca and the Dukes of Este.
Walls of Barga:
Barga possessed walls since the Middle Ages; the castle of Barga was repeatedly besieged during the struggle between Lucca and the Holy See in the aftermath of Countess Matilde’s death, cause of much bloodshed in the Serchio valley.
It became an important commercial and agricultural centre thanks to its flatlands and soon aroused the envy of Lucca: so the latter imposed on Barga high duties giving rise to a lively smuggling activity towards the Florentine territory. The damage caused by this illegal activity to Lucca’s economy prompted the siege of 1298 that destroyed the walls. It was only after 1316 that Castruccio Castracani had the fortifications rebuilt and the town slowly regained its commercial and political role; however, at Castruccio’s death, the citizens of Barga took advantage of Lucca’s moment of weakness and daringly declared themselves subject to Florence: so began, in 1331, the long and prosperous Florentine period during which the walls were restored and reinforced until they reached their final consistency, maintained until the XIXth century demolitions, with high and narrow curtains, to which later several truncated cone shaped towers were added.
In 1550 Giovan Battista Belluzzi, famous architect of the Medici, came to Barga where he remained a long time to oversee repairs to the walls that threatened to collapse in several places.
The long period of peace that marked the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries in the Serchio valley gradually diminished the strategic importance of the town’s fortifications. One of the gates, the Porta di Borgo, was pulled down in 1833 and the same fate was later reserved to part of the walls that had to make way for a new road. During World War II some of the remaining portions of the walls were destroyed by bombs.
Barga is situated at the northern most part of Tuscany, it lies in the Grafagnana’s valley(very rich in history and tradition).This Tuscany’s valley ,generated by the serchio river and its waterways, is a treasure box full of natural riches,enclosed between the mountain chains of the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian.
Appennines.A perfect place to be in contact with the nature and the traditions of TuscanyThe contrast between these two enviroments, not only morphologically, but even socially and traditionally diverse, gives birth to an unusual gamma of images and colours.This the ideal enviroment for who wants to live in direct contact with nature, rediscovering at the same time the history of a valley and the traditional hospitality of Tuscany‘s inhabitants.
Discovering the Garfagnana on horseback, on foot, on a mountain bike, by following the paths and the old mule trails means reliving the history of these mountains.
This is the beautiful place where holiday house Il Trebbio is located!
