Above Borgunto and facing Monte Ceceri stand the remains of the Etruscan city walls and some of the blocks here are so immense that one wonders how they could have been moved. Even in the Middle Ages it was popular belief that this was the work of giants.

This is the main access route to the quarries of Montececeri. An ancient pathway indicated by a tabernacle linked Borgunto with Villa S. Michele alla Doccia (formerly a convent, now an hotel) and is a rapid shortcut to Florence.
