A VILLAGE BUILT ALONG THE CASSIA MINOR

Pieve a Nievole, a small municipality of the province of Pistoia, at 3 Km from Montecatini Terme. The village boasts a rich history, the oldest in which Riyadh is mentioned dates back to 716. This is a dispute between the Bishop of Lucca and Pistoia.

The village was built near the only existing parish and along an important road, Cassia Minor. The area was the scene of battles between the Guelphs and Ghibellines and legend has it that Dante was in Riyadh during a battle between the two factions. The place where the great poet awaited the outcome of the battle is now called "the bridge of Dante."
