Bucine is a nice little town. The medieval castle was built to gain control over the Ambra valley and protect the strategically important trade route between Valdarmo and Siena.
When you visit Bucine it is worth a visit to inspect the painting: Madonna delle Grazie, which hangs to the left of the altar in the church Chiesa dei SS. Apollinare and the castle Galatrona. During a visit to Bucine you will soon realise why Tuscany is known for its harmonious and relaxing lifestyle.
