A village in the centre of Svizzera Pesciatina, rich in monuments and artistic testimonies. Pescia, the main town of the green and secluded Svizzera Pesciatina, is one of those places where you can see the evolution of the territory, plastically depicted by the urban physiognomy. The medieval history in fact is represented, on the oriental side of the Pescia stream, by the Cathedral, an ancient parish church of the bishopric of Lucca, which faces, on the western side, the municipal buildings. Born as a mighty castle, Pescia soon had to reckon with Firenze, which in 1339 conquered it after taking it from Lucca. From that point on Pescia followed the fate of Firenze, becoming a part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
