The beautiful architecture of the Church of San Biagio, perhaps the most beautiful of this area, was built by Antonio da San Gallo il Vecchio. During his long activity, this artist had the opportunity to confront the masters of the Tuscan Renaissance, such as Giuliano and Antonio da Sangallo, with the protagonists of the Roman Renaissance, as Bramante or Raphael and with the generation of Mannerism as well as the great Michelangelo of which was rival.

For fans of stories, you will find out that in these woods many miracles happened, and we will tell you anecdotes that reveal for example the story of St. William and the dragon who lived in the woods, or the Saint, daughter of St. Peter, named Petronilla and about her miraculous source hidden in the wood.
