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.
Photographer & Founder
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.
