San Giovanni in Sugana Parish Church

The parish church of San Giovanni in Sugana was built around the beginning of the XIII century; the structure is characterized by only one nave with apse, that is quite unusual for a parish in Chianti but more common in Val d’Elsa and in small churches of this period.

On this area, that is inhabited since prehistory, rises the town of Cerbaia .This town was characterised by the presence of important flows (river Pesa and one of its most important tributary, the Sugana) and by the closeness to the Via Volterrana, which, since the Etruscan age, connected Florence to Volterra and that, right in Cerbaia, crossed the river Pesa.
