Montecatini Val di Cecina
- Restaurants - Typical Products - Services -
A powerful tower, the ancient residence of the Belforti family, dominates over Montecatini Val di Cecina and the surrounding territory. The village shows all the typical characteristics of the medieval settlement grown up around the buildings representing the political and religious power: the Palazzo Pretorio with a cross-vault porch and the 14th century Church of San Biagio.
The landscape around Montecatini Val di Cecina offers precious glimpses of a rare beauty with its woods full of wildlife and charming little villages like Castel Querceto, surrounded by thick woods, with the Romanesque Parish Church of Saint John, and La Sassa, situated on a hill overlooking a vast scenery that goes from Volterra to the Thyrrenian coast, with its old houses embracing the Tower and the Church of Saint Martin.
And finally the villages of Casaglia and Gello, and the old copper mine in the outskirts of Montecatini Val di Cecina, known since the times of the Etruscans.
Ponteginori is a recently established town which is located on the right-hand banks of the river Cecina. Its name derives from a bridge which the Count Carlo Ginori had constructed over the river between 1831 and 1835.
