||The Montalbano Castle, by now transformed
in a luxury condominium , rises just out of Florence and dominates
the Aretina road to defense of the way for the Valdarno Superiore
(upper Arno Valley). Nothing of the original medieval building
called 'Rocca Tedalda' remains, due to a complete reconstruction
in New-Gothic style carried on at the end of last century. Private
property, is visible only from the outside.
