Montecatini Val di Cecina

Montecatini Val di Cecina, ancient medieval village on a hill, is part of the territory of the Val di Cecina, land of sweet and sour aspects, in which it is always possible to breathe the air of ancient ages. During the 19th century the extraction of copper, practiced since etruscan age, had a strong expansion, and the one of Montecatini V.C. became the greatest copper mine of Europe. Today the mine is closed, but the Museum of the Mines can be visited, in Camporciano. Walking through the alleys of the historical center, you can reach the beautiful Piazza del Castello, where there is the Church of San Biagio, erected in 1356, and the Pretorio Palace, a building of the 14th century with a wonderful facade embellished with the porch. The square is dominated by the imposing Torre dei Belforti, built in the 11th century, 28 meters high. The small hamlet of Miemo, of probably medieval origin, is an ancient village situated in strategic position, extremely evocative, with the crenellated walls and the church of Sant'Andrea. Among the other hamlets of Montecatini, all charming, Sassa, Casaglia, Gello, Buriano, Mocajo and, above all, Querceto, with the beautiful Castle, the ancient houses and the Church of San Giovanni Battista.
