Description - Hostel

With a breathtaking view of Florence below, the Antico Spedale del Bigallo is a medieval building of 13th century, which lies on a hill 5 km. SE of the city. Formerly it functioned as hospital for pilgrims and wayfarers and in the 16th century it became a monastery. Today it is a modern and comfortable Youth Hostel with 40 beds housed in appealing medieval dormitories. The Bigallo Youth Hostel welcomes third millennium pilgrims who yearn to live in an atmosphere outside of time and space and who enjoy both the beauty of nature and of the nearby art centres of Tuscany. The Antico Spedale del Bigallo also has a ceremony room with space for 100 seats, fit for public and private gatherings, such as weddings, anniversaries, concerts, art exhibitions, meetings and/or conferences.
