Description

Torre dei Cielo was originally a watch tower, built around the first half of the 1600s by Ferdinando II de' Medici and was used by a small group of soldiers to watch over and defend themselves from the arrival of possible enemies. The tower is one of a series, still present today, built along the border with the Church State to protect the borders from possible invasions. It is situated at about 2.5km from Monterchi, the last piece of land of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, very close to the border of the Church State and world famous for the fresco by Piero della Francesa of the "Madonna del Parto".
Due to its privileged position (dominating the valley of Padonchia) Torre del Cielo has seen numerous battles over the centuries. As proof of this you can still see the antique slit windows from where the soldiers used to shoot and during the restoration swords and knives were found, showing military activity.
In 1894 Francesco Rosadi, great grandfather of the current owner, extended the original tower, giving it the form and dimension you can admire today.
The Villa has been recently restored maintaining all of the typical features of a Tuscan country house.
