Following the road from Castelnuovo Berardenga to Baron Ricasoli's Castello di Brolio we find the Castle of San Gusmé in Chianti, a beautiful medieval fortified village that appears at documents of the IX Century. The castle, 465 meters over the sea level is ideally located among castles, villas and Chianti farmhouses and can be considered one of the most characteristic buildings of Tuscany.
San Gusmé, with its ancient arches and doors, its narrow streets and its beautiful buildings has kept intact the atmosphere of the 1200, allowing the tourists to live some unforgettable moments. The original name of the village was San Cosma e Damiano, Saint of the local church that dates back to the 1000's. There is also another Church SS. Annunziata that dates back to the XIV Century.

A famous website (http://tuscany-travel.blogspot.com/2006/02/san-gusme-step-back-to-relax.html) write about the Castle of San Gusmè:
"The little town of San Gusme was an old defense bastion for Siena. Located between Siena and Florence, it served its function for many centuries unril the black plague changed the Tuscan politics in the Middleages.
Today that bastion is a lovely village perfectly preserved and remembering the old function it fulfilled so many centuries ago. The outside portions of the castle are adorned by beautiful villas and farmhouses the Tuscan lords built during the 18th and 19th century. The inside parte is ridged by tiny narrow streets, and massive walls stare at you wile you walk through the streets until a surprisingly beautiful scenery opens in front of you and you can find yourself (as I did) staring at the horizon while the evening breeze salutes your rediscovered contact with Nature. Suddenly you want to know more about it all, but later, not today. First you want to digest this environment and make it yours, even if just for a bit. Cars pass by so rarely that it seems another time in history, and the sounds from inside the homes give you the feeling you are not a foreigner, but that someone may actually call up to you and invite you to eat with them.
Simplicity is the main thing at San Gusme, and this is the place where you want to be if you want to relax and let it all go, even if just for a little bit.
