The Medicean stables are found at the beginning of the road that leads from Poggio a Caiano to Prato, at an elevation lower than that of the villa. The stables were built for Cosimo I around 1548 by Nicolò Pericoli, known as Tribolo. The building is quite large in size (about 3400 m2). The structure, in the form of a basilica, could house some 200 horses as well as the grooms who cared for them. The Scuderie (Stables) have been recently restored with great expertise and equipped for use as an exhibition and conference centre. The complex includes a library and a tourist information bureau.
