San Quirico, Pescia, Pistoia

with No Comments

The frst mention of San Quirico village dates back to the 10th century when its church was documented. During the medieval period its inhabitants had a long and bloodied fight with nearby castles, especially Castelvecchio, which as the time belonged to Florence. At the end of the 14th century, and only a few of its inhabitants remaining. The republic of lucca trying to increase the castle population, offered a 10 year tax free policy to anybody who wanted to settle there. More history on its way.

I'm a English photographer and mother living in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I find myself lost in the stunning landscape and architecture of these ancient settlements. I try and portray this beauty through my images, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
