Borgo San Lorenzo
Under the House of Hapsburg-Lorraine in Tuscany, Borgo San Lorenzo became the most important centre in the whole Mugello area, thanks to its centrally located position and the boom in building and farming introduced by the Grand Duchy.
In the nineteenth century, the town’s importance was further confirmed by the systematic, organised development of industry and, at the turn of the century, the creation of the railway network which linked the town with Florence, Faenza and Pontassieve. In 1861 Borgo San Lorenzo was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy by King Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy.
The town is ideal for nature lovers, as there are many trails and paths around Borgo San Lorenzo which tourists and hikers can enjoy all year round.
