The Rock Face of Monte Voltraio

Three km to the East of Volterra, Monte Voltraio rises and differs from the surrounding clay landscape due to its unmistakeable outline pyramidal like, coming from its geological composition of sand and limestone that on the eastern side has a true rock face. Thanks to its natural characteristics this low hill (458 m.) became a fortified settlement that controlled the transit roads.
