Historic notes

In correspondence to the farmhouse holiday's geographic site, arises the so called Pieve (Parish) Extra Moenia of Saint Ciriaco of Altidona, of which there are still visable remainings.
Pieve (Parish) is the name given to a Paleo Christian Baptist church, not that the matrix of the new Christians generally ark in the rural character.
The documentation concerned are relevanty late (starting in the 1291) although its known that all the Pieve's have origins very antic that go over any historic reference.
