Anghiari is a Medieval town in the Valtiberina Valley in Tuscany. It is famous for being the scene of a battle in 1440 that was depicted by Leonardo da Vinci in a legendary fresco, which was later lost. At the centre of the town is the Borghetto, the oldest Medieval settlement, which is surrounded by strong 16th-century walls. The town’s main sights include the imposing Medieval Campano tower, the ancient Badia church, carved out of the rock, and Palazzo Taglieschi, which now houses the State Museum.
