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.
