Podium Marturi and its castle was the regenerating nucleus of the current Poggibonsi. On the Via Francigena and a few km from San Gimignano, Florentine sympathizer, it was attacked in 1115 and destroyed. The Counts Guidi, in 1155 rebuilt the castle on the Podium Bonizi, starting a little with Siena and a little with Florence. In 1203 it was the mayor of Poggiobonizio who issued the sentence on the borders between Florence and Siena. Alterne the events that forced the city to build and demolish fortifications. In 1267 the Guelfi returned to Florence, in 1269, after the defeat Ghibellina di Colle, was again targeted. The Medici then built the fortress of Poggio Imperiale, guaranteeing its security, but the area never took off until modern times. Poggibonsi is today a flourishing merchant town. To be seen.
