Controguerra

Description

A picturesque village perched on the hills of Teramane, Controguerra boasts very ancient origins, dating back to prehistoric times, as attested by numerous archaeological finds unearthed in the area, on exhibition in the Town Hall and in the museums of Florence and Rome. The origins of town's name are uncertain: according to some, in fact, it derives from the union of the words "contrada" (district) with "Guerra" (in this case a person's name that means "war"), while according to others, it derives from the Latin word "contra" (opposite) and " war "(defined as a site that can be identified in Monsampolo).

Places of interest, not to miss:
- the Tower, built in 1370 on ancient Roman ruins;
- a Roman inscription discovered in 1878 in the district of Santa Croce, now preserved in the Palazzo Rossi-Barcarolle;
- the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which features a superb brick façade and inside preserves a three nave plan;
- the Church of San Francesco;
- the Chapel of the Icon, in which is preserved a precious painting of the XVII century;
- the typical houses built in clay "pinciaie", without any kind of foundations, erected since ancient times with dried clay and straw blocks.
