The Medicea Fortress (Fortezza Medicea), that stands on the Hill of San Donato (viale B.Buozzi), constitutes an important example of military defensive architecture of the 16th century. The Fortress was built from 1538 according to the plan of strengthening of the defense by Cosimo de´Medici. The building is on the place in which rose the constructions of the III-II century b.C. and of the 1300´s; however it is perfectly inserted in the town-walls and has irregular pentagonal shape in order to adapt itself to the ground. Originally equipped with three doors and encircled by a wide ditch, the Fortress was used until the 1700´s. In 1800 it was partially dismantled by the French soldiers; on the west flank the lesion caused by an explosion is still visible. The Fossombroni family acquired the Fortress and in 1893, through the will of Count Enrico, it became possession of the City of Arezzo. It was turned into garden and promenade area, with various works executed in the period 1896-1904. Inside of one of the bastions has been found a door of the fortress of the 14th century, with a remarkable statue of San Michele Arcangelo, now kept in the museum of the city. The bastions of the Fortress constitutes a panoramic point on the city, the river Arno valley, the massif of Pratomagno and the alp of Catenaia.
