The land of strove
The history of this small village cradled by the Sienese hills started shortly before the year 1000, but its origins are even older. In fact, the Etruscan road passed through Strove and it was indeed the Etruscans who gave it a name, inspired by the red colour of its earth. Later came the pilgrims of the Frankish Road and the knights, the battles and the legends, the curches and the castles.
Relais Castel Bigozzi
Castelbigozzi, one of the oldest embattled castles of this area, rises on the land of Strove In the Middle Ages this castle belonged to the ancestors of the old and noble Montanini family. Its coats of arms well recounts its history: a red shield, like the land that surrounds it, a black lion, symbol of courage and battles, glory and defeats. Historical chronicles in fact report that is was a place of refuge and protection for Ghibelline troops. Today, CastelBigozzi is a tourist residence that offers hospitality to guests from the four corners of the world.
