The municipal territory of San Romano in Garfagnana extends for 26.04 square kilometres in a panoramic position on the left slope of the high valley of the Serchio, from the trough of the valley bottom almost to the watershed Appenninico.

Until the middle of the 1200s San Romano was dominion of the Gherardinghi Counts who, enclosed in the Verrucole castle, dominated the valley. Then after a brief period of autonomy, it followed the destiny of the high Garfagnana, first under the jurisdiction of Lucca and then from 1448 under the Estensi.
