The Area: Driving along the Lungomonte road towards Calci we enter the green Zambra valley and quickly reach the Certosa (Charterhouse), one of the most sumptuous religious buildings in Tuscany. Founded in May 1366 by the archbishop of Pisa Francesco Moricotti, to fulfill the will of the Armenian merchant Pietro di Mirante della Vergine, the Certosa di Pisa was built in a place called “Valle buia”, the name later changed to “Valle gratiosa” , because it was touched by Divine Grace. The building expanded slowly thanks to the donations of wealthy Pisan families , and at the end of the eighteenth century, it was decorated by the Pisan painter Pietro Giarrè . The Certosa represents one of the highest examples of Baroque in Tuscany.
