Bibbiena Tuscany Information and Guide

Bibbiena was an important Etruscan town. In later years a Medieval castle, whose Torre dei Tarlati and the Porta dei Fabbri still exist, was built.

In the town centre are fine buildings: Palazzo Mazzoleni, Palazzo Niccolini and Palazzo Dovizi, built by cardinal Bernardo Dovizi, born in Bibbiena, secretary to Cardinal Giovanni de’Medici (later Pope Leone X).

Among the religious buildings are the church of San Lorenzo which contains glazed terracotta by the Della Robbia school, the rather Rococo Oratorio di San Francesco, the Pieve di Sant’Ippolito, once the chapel of the Tarlati castle, and the Santuario di Santa Maria del Sasso, one of the most important Renaissance buildings in the Casentino.
A special event is the Rievocazione della Mea (last Sunday of Carnival and Shrove Tuesday).
