Spaltenna is an ancient feudal hamlet consisting of the church with its bell tower dated from the IX century, the adjacent castle and a small group of houses, a splendid example of medieval architecture. The castle and the church were first noted in a document of 1030. Rich in history and legend, the buildings are enriched by beamed ceilings and sumptuous doorways. During medieval times the church held jurisdiction over a number of surrounding villages, Vertine, San Donato in Perano and Montegrossi. The Spaltenna complex, surrounded by vineyards and woods, looks out over a splendid valley, at the center of an area rich in castles and ruins, ancient abbeys and medieval villages.
