The city of Pescia has ancient medieval origins; divided by the river, it is clearly countersigned by two urban sectors: that of the Cathedral and that of the Town Building, where the great plaza is extended.
Ancient buildings and elegant churches characterize the historical center that, despite has suffered notable interventions, it still possesses its native form.

The first images of Pescia go up again to Four hundred and they put in prominence the two postings (castle-parish) and the steep hill that goes down really toward the river.
In 1339 the castle of Pescia, after a history plurisecolare under the dominion lucchese, passed under Florence. The February 6 1339 the Florentines entered in Pescia and from that moment the community it followed the fates of the government of the " lily ".
The great structures chiesastiche, also almost all having a medieval foundation, you/they have suffered strong architectural and decorative rehashes in the Be-seven hundred one.
In the XVII century, in fact, Pescia knew his artistic season and best politics; community began to have an order more citizen; the small institutional realities, that had had a character up to that moment more famigliares, began, for so to say, to become real services for the local society.
The Commune of Pescia is extended on a territorial surface of 79,14 Km2s.
