The discovery of Barga in the heart of Garfagnana

A village full of charm and history

In the heart of Garfagnana, there is an exceptionally charming village that will leave you breathless, Barga.

 

The village of Barga is counted among the most beautiful in Italy and is 410 metres on the Hill Remeggio in the province of Lucca.

 

To dominate the country stands the imposing Castle dominating the surrounding Valley and the old town. The plan of the city is typically medieval, protected by a majestic city wall reached from 3 doors.

 

The most important building is without doubt the Duomo, ideal starting point to get lost in the exploration of a thousand alleys and beautiful views over the city and the surrounding Valley.

 

Two other unmissable sights to see are: the House of Pascoli and the Teatro dei Differenti, buildings related to the poet Giovanni Pascoli who considered Barga his adoptive city.

 

This fascinating Tuscan village is the perfect place to relax, enjoy great local food like the trout, the vegetable soups, mushrooms and chestnuts and experience the authentic taste of Tuscany Vera.

 

If you're really planning on going on a weekend to explore this ancient village we recommend staying in this charming hotel, a few steps from the historic centre: HOTEL VILLA MOORINGS.

 

What aspects, experience the true Tuscan Style!
