Among the hills above the small village of Dicomano, on a small plateau overlooking the Valdisieve, there is the small medieval village of Frascole.


Built on an Etruscan and Roman settlement, this village is rich in archeological findings.
The excavations, which began in 1978, have brought to light several findings, some of which are now preserved in the town hall of Dicomano.
The most interesting find is a Fiesole type stars, a funerary monument dating back to the sixth century BC, depicting a bearded male figure.
The archaeological area is freely accessible, here have been discovered the foundations of the Romanesque church of San Martino al Poggio (VI sec.ac), a massive quadrangular perimeter of what is thought to be a defensive structure and control road transit from Casentino (the Etruscans, you know, were fervent traders) however, is not excludable the hypothesis that this finding could be a great temple, worthy of note is the shrine of St. Martin in Frascole (recently restored ).
