At 640 metres above sea level, the village has an unexpected charm, with a beautiful panoramic view over Crasciana and Casabasaciana and the largest square of all the hamlets of Bagni di Lucca.
During the summer in Brandeglio there are a lot of evening events and dinners.
In the square there is the chapel of the Madonna delle Grazie, known by the villagers as the "Margine", the fountain of the village with an inscription by the Latinist F. Cianelli and the monument to the fallen of the Great War.
The bell tower, with Ghibelline merlons, brings the whole village together.
There are two theories about the origin of the name of the village: the first is that it derived from the Roman noble Blandius; the second theory is that it derives from the Lombard word “brand”, meaning sword, hence the sword that appears in the emblem of the village.
