Furthermore, the Church San Piero a Grado and the Parish Church, both located in the nearby town of Calci, also make a fine daytrip destination, given that both substantiate the fineness of the Romanesque style and date back to the 11th and the 12th century, respectively. San Piero a Grado, however, is of particular interest given that the nowadays establishment has been built on the remains of a former Christian venue crucial in the past for the huge flow of pilgrims coming from the north and heading for Rome. Its pieces of works of religious art aside, another feature capitalized by the church, from a tourist point of view, refers to the local legend according to which Saint Peter himself stopped on the current place of the establishment on his way to Rome.
