Tours
The Tower of Montecatini Val di Cecina
Guided tour to discover the Belforti medieval tower, symbol of the ancient village near Volterra, that offers peace, beautiful views and a fascinating history

Enjoyable guided visit to an authentic medieval tower house in Montecatini Val di Cecina, a proud hamlet of the war tradition.

Originally a castle and a mansion for the knights coming from the North, Montecatini still preserves the memory of its military past in its big tower and ancient walls.

After its military period, Montecatini rediscovered its mining potential, which the Etruscans undoubtedly already exploited centuries earlier, but without losing its noble charm and fierce character that still make this little town so captivating.
The church, the building of the town hall Palazzo Pretorio and the different squares (the famous “piazze”), give the town a cityish look and emphasise its importance for the area around it.

Set in a dominant position, the Tower was built during 1300 by the noble family Belforti, powerful in Volterra at that time and, in fact ,the Fortress gazes exactly at Volterra.
