Woods and glades behind Florence

The ANPIL (Natural Protected Area of Local Interest) of S.Brigida was founded by the Municipality of Pontassieve in 1997 and extends over more than 800 hectares: it is situated in south-west of Monte Giovi's mountain group, which reaches a maximum altitude of 992 m above sea level. It constitutes a preapennine chain in an east-to-west direction and can be considered as the central-eastern part of the watershed between the Mugello (north) and the Valdarno (south). The Protected Area is situated right behind Santa Brigida, in the northern limits of our municipality, few kilometers far from Florence and near the southern and western sides of the Poggio Ripaghera and Poggio Abetina, including the cool and shadowy Valle dell'Inferno.
