THE ROMANESQUE VILLAGE FULL OF BEAUTIFUL CHURCHES

Pescaglia was founded in Roman times, but the origin of the name is uncertain. It is thought to come from pascualia because in antiquity was known as grazing land or from the Latin piscare for its abundance of fishing in the nearby river Serchio.

Examples are the Church of St Peter and St Paul and the Church of St Giovanni Battista, just outside the town.
