Volterra

Volterra, famous for the extraction and the processing of the alabaster, rises on a hill and conserves a remarkable historical center and the town-walls of Etruscan origin (of this age remains only the Porta all'Arco). Here the historical tradition joins to the splendid nature that offers, from vegetation to fauna, an imposing patrimony. The artistic and monumental tokens can be admired simply taking a walk along the streets of the historical center, but also visiting the city museums. Among the buildings of great historical and artistic interest: the Cathedral, in Romanesque style, raised between the 12th and the 13th century; the Baptistry of San Giovanni, built in the second half of the 1200's, and the roman theatre dated to the end of first century before Christ, that was brought to light in the Fifties in the locality of Vallebuona.
