PATH OF THE MONUMENTAL CHESTNUTS, Valle della Scesta, Tuscany

The Valle della Scesta is an extensive area characterised by huge and perfectly kept chestnut trees with trunks of up to 9-10 meters.

The monumental chestnut trees represent a natural evidence of the existence of the old “Chestnut Civilisation.” This civilisation settled in the middle of the 1600s, but there are chestnuts whose dimensions suggest an even older age, up to 500 years.
