Cavriglia has origins in the Etruscan times, but it was largely developed in the Roman era. This can be seen by the Pieve di San Giovanni Battista. During the medieval period the Montaio Castello was the main stronghold of the area. It got completely destroyed during the fights between the Guelfi and Ghibellini in 1252, but was rebuilt and used as a defence point of the Florence area.
In the early 1800s the various, small hamlets that make up the area around Cavriglia were united to create the Cavriglia municipality.

Parco di Cavriglia
The Cavriglia park covers an area of 600 hectars and has many walking paths and a picnic area. There is a large selection of free roaming animals, making this an ideal place for children.
There is a small entry fee.
The park is open every day from Monday to Saturday.

Roseto Botanico Carla Fineschi
Established in 1967, the Carla Fineschi Botanical Rose Garden houses rose species and hybrids from all over the world. It is a non lucrative, unique, private collection which aims to maintain a scientific collection of roses. The Cavriglia Rose Garden came to life thanks to Prof. Gianfranco Fineschi, a professor at the faculty of medicine at the Cattolica University of Rome. Overtime the garden and has improved and is constantly expanding with new species.
The garden is open from the first Sunday in May to the last Sunday of June. There is a small entrance fee which goes to maintain the garden.
