Val d’Orcia

Val d’Orcia

The Val D’Orcia is a broad valley located around Mount Amiata, next to Umbria.

The name is provided by the river Orcia and it is well-known for Pienza and Montalcino.

During the ancient times the landscape was transformed for farming purposes and the cypress trees were planted to provide shade to protect the poor water sources.

The presence of the Via Francigena brought the presence of towns that are well known historical jewels even today: Castiglione D’Orcia, Pienza, Radicofano, San Quirico d’Orcia. The valley presents also thermal springs that can be admired in Bagno Vignoni or Bagni di San Filippo, where you can still appreciate the contact with nature.

From July 2nd 2004 this valley was acknowledged as Unesco heritage because of its well preserved landscape since the Roman times, witnessing a respectful relationship between man and nature.
