HistoryEdit

Traces from the Iron Age indicate this town existed in the 8th century BC.

Manocalzati was later a fiefdom of the San Barbato family.

Main sightsEdit

The town retains its original medieval appearance, with narrow streets and palaces with decorated portals from the 18th and 19th centuries. There are two churches from the 18th century: Saint Michael (belltower built in the 16th century) and Saint Anna.

Within Manocalzati is San Barbato, a small hamlet overlooking the Serinese valley. Its medieval architecture is composed of houses surrounding a medieval castle.
