Palazzone is located a few kilometres away from San Casciano dei Bagni, with its history closely linked to Fighine Castle. The village’s origin is prior to the castle and linked to a Roman farm built along Cassia road in the Orvieto-Chiusi stretch. Evidence of this is supported by the presence of the church of Santa Maria Assunta which was among the early Christian parish churches of the Diocese of Chiusi. After the decline of the Roman Empire, the consequent decline of the consular road and Val di Chiana turning into marshland forced the local population to move to the more secure location of Fighine Castle and to the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.
At the end of the 18th century Palazzone began to restore its original autonomy with the establishment of the parish in 1794. Today Palazzone welcomes many tourists in its small but charming historic centre and it is definitely a must during your stay in San Casciano dei Bagni. The best time to visit the village is July when the village celebrates the Wine Festival.
