The town of Radda in Chianti is enclosed by the ancient city walls which have been partly preserved.
The urban plan of the historical city centre has a central road system that leads to the town square dominated by the Palazzo del Podestà and the parish church.

Given its strategic importance, the ancient Republic of Florence decided to protect Radda in Chianti with a defensive brick wall. The structure is still visible and receives a lot of attention from visitors.

Here are some important buildings and monuments which are not to be missed:

Palazzo del Podestà (Palace of the mayor)
Built in the 15th century and almost completely destroyed in 1478, this building preserves the portico (porch) of the original structure, pertaining to minor Florentine architecture from the early 15th century.

Granducale Ghiacciaia (Ice House)
During the era of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, numerous Ice Houses were created in various parts of Tuscany. Many were in the shape of a pyramid, such as the one in the Parco delle Cascine in Florence. Others, such as this one in Radda were created in the shape of a truncated cone and half-buried.
This is a typical example of proto-industrial production. From the end of the 18th century until the 1930s, ten or so ice houses were in operation throughout the region of Tuscany.

Pieve di Santa Maria Novella
The Pieve di Santa Maria Novella is a Roman Church and is one of the most important examples of Roman architecture in the Florentine county territory.
Inside is a concentration of all the characters which form the artistic, structural and formal language of Romanesque art of the 12th century.
The Pieve is composed of a basilica with three naves in the same number of apses, separated by a succession of arches resting on rectangular pillars, alternated by composite columns and pillars.
Inside, works of art are preserved, including a processional cross in gold plated copper, two glazed terracotta works from the Santi Buglioni workshop and two renaissance tabernacles in Serena stone.

Cappella del Mercatale
The chapel of Santa Maria Maddalena dei Pazzi, also known as the "cappella del Mercatale", is a sacred building situated at the edge of the city of Radda in Chianti.
The chapel represents all the construction parameters of a small church of worship with a single nave, preceded by a portico. Despite having been built in the early 18th century, the building is fitted with architectural elements which date back to Florentine Mannerism.

In the heart of Chianti, apartments and rooms in a charming and unique village of ancient memory.
