Palleroso is a beautifully preserved medieval hilltop village first mentioned in 1169 when it was pillaged by Berudico da Bozzano. About 150 years later it was sold to the Florentine Republic for the bargain price of 10,000 gold florins. It has had a long and varied history since and retains an air of mystery and beauty.
