Church of Santa Maria Assunta - Bientina
Nestled in greenery in the Monte Pisano foothills

Although it vaunts a medieval appearance, Bientina has acquired a more contemporary feel over the years. The town is a superb base for visitors wanting to explore Monte Pisano and the nearby Valdera valley.

The town’s monuments include the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, which houses the relics of San Valentino, the Museum of Sacred Art, the Etruscan Museum and the Church of San Girolamo, which features a permanent local history exhibition. The collection includes Etruscan and Roman artefacts found in the Bientina swampland during local archaeological digs between 1953 and 1957.

The Tanali woodland is perfect for nature lovers. Located to the west of the Bientina swampland, on the slopes of Monte Pisano, the wood extends for about 153 hectares on the edge of the former bed of the lake, offering a variety of very different habitats: wetlands that often flood, canes, woods and ponds, home to myriad plants and animals.

Craftsmanship is an important resource for Bientina, with an antiques fair every fourth weekend of the month in piazza dei Borghi.
