Description

Castelnuovo Val di Cecina is a small village clinging to the side of a hill. It formed around a few streets, and its central sites are the Church of SS. Salvatore and the Holy Crypt. The lower part still has the ancient city walls, and nature trails spring off from them, including one leading to the bridge over the Torrente Pavone and another offering views of the Valle del Cornia. It is an area known for ​​mines, Etruscan ruins and geothermal steam. The subsoil warns inhabitants with acrid odours and offers warm waters, such as those of the Bagnone spa area. The town’s particular, unusual shape, like a bunch of grapes, distinguishes it from the other villages of the Val di Cecina and from the numerous nearby hamlets.
It is located on the border between the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Grosseto, at an altitude of 576 metres. This location, among the hills yet near the coast, encourages an influx of tourists seeking a picturesque landscape between the mountains of Le Cornate, the Torrente Pavone and scenery that shifts from the chestnut and beech woods of the higher areas to Mediterranean scrub as one approaches the sea. The numerous archaeological sites testify to the presence of the Etruscans and the Romans, who already appreciated the area’s favourable environmental conditions and establish settlements there.
