Not far from the property the Berignone-Tatti forest, a protected area because of the presence of diverse species of flora and fauna: it is not rare for visitors to see animals, like hare, wild boar, porcupines, mouflon, weasels, beech-martens, badgers, and any one of the numerous species of predatory and migratory birds.
The hilltop medieval village of Pomarance is situated between Volterra and Massa Marittima, in the centre of the Val di Cecina. Pomarance has been transformed from a medieval village into a modern little town thanks to the harnessing of geothermic activity.
Pomarance is worth a visit. Among the attractions there is the Rocca Sillana fortification dating back to the twelfth century and set on a hill to dominate the surrounding area. The building was later annexed to the church of San Bartolomeo. Another important church is that of St. John the Baptist built on an Etruscan necropolis; the three-nave interior is decorated with works of the nineteenth century. The main religious architecture of the town, however, is the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary from the second half of the last century.
Those who are interested in folklore shouldn’t miss the “Palio delle Contrade,” which takes place once a year on the second Sunday of September. http://www.turismo.intoscana.it/allthingstuscany/aroundtuscany/the-devils-valley-in-tuscany-pomarance-and-larderello/
