The 'Burleo' is situated in the heart of beauty of the Tuscan landscape, in a town called Altopascio in the Provence of Lucca , along the ancient 'via Francigena', a road once used in the medieval times by Christians on their pilgrimage travels between Rome, Canterbury and Santiago de Compostela, fuelling the growth of the communities around the churches and taverns giving shelter to those travellers.
Once noted in the past to have given origin to the Cavaliers of Tau, today Altopascio holds the title for the 'City of bread and hospitality', also being famous for its homemade products coming from the ancient mills, giving board to the modern travellers on their pilgrimage .
