Castle walls and doors

Posted in Cosa Visitare

The city walls that surround Monte San Savino had a sloping trend  with an inlet near the Chiesa del Suffragio. The former Medieval structure (X-XII century) was destroyed in 1325 by Guido Tarlati, the Arezzo's bishop and  Lord. Starting from this period many interventions took place whose  results are the city walls of today. Among the latest restructuring interventions listed the demolition of a part  of the walls including the tower of Porta San Giovanni and the renovation of a big  part of the walls by the Superintendence of Arezzo from 1970 to 1986.

Initially, it was possible to enter the church only by going throught the cloister of the church of Saint Agustín to the Tuscan door by Andrea Sansovino.  At the beginning of the XVII century this building was restored completely by Orazio Porta and probably during the restoration works the positioning  of the church was changed. After suppressing the religious  fellowship, the church was used as a barn until 1819, when Paolo Girolamo Galletti bought it.
