Fort Belvedere

Fort BelvedereThis is an important example of military architecture from the end of the 16th century. Fort Belvedere is sometimes called Forte di San Giorgio because of the name of the hill, and it was built by the Grand Duke Ferdinand I to the design of Bernardo Buontalenti.

Star-shaped with triangular bastions, it also encloses the small Belvedere Palazzetto, and this too was designed by Buontalenti. From here, there is a magnificent view of Florence and the surrounding hills. Because the location is beautiful and there is plenty of space, the fortress is an ideal setting for exhibitions and cultural events.
