Bigozzi is one of the oldest castles of this area situated up the hill of Strove, a little medieval village on the Francigena way. In the middle ages this castle belonged to the ancestors of the old and noble Montanini family and its Coat Of Arms well recounts its history. A red shield like the land that surrounds it and a black lion, symbol of courage, battles, glory and victories. Historical chronicles report that it was a place of refuge and protection from Ghibelline troops.
