A dive into history, the Medici fortresses

The entrance to the fortresses is at the end of Via Guerrazzi, a road commonly called the "Porta a Terra" because it leads to the second access to the Medici city. Suggestive is the walk on the "Attack Front", a majestic and imposing architectural complex that closes the ancient Cosmopoli, the city of Cosimo, to the west.

Fortification consisting of ramparts at different altitudes sloping down to the sea, it was one of the main defensive poles of the city together with Forte Falcone, Forte Stella and Linguella; progressively strengthened, they were places of military residence and important observation and sighting points.

Today, benches, a refreshment point, games for children allow you to spend pleasant moments suspended between present and past, giving visitors a suggestive immersion in the illustrious history of the city.
