etween the end of the 15th and beginning of the 16th century Borgo Il Poeta
started its life as a military watch tower between on the Umbrian - Tuscan border
and continued to be developed through the 17th century when the chapel was added.
years of painstaking restoration brought it back to full life in the mid 1990s.
Great care has been taken to use local craftsmen and materials for the building
whilst the furniture, much of it antique, has been collected all over Europe.
