Pomarance

Pomarance Pomarance

Documented as early as the tenth century, Pomarance boasts a Romanesque church with works by local painters and Nicholas Cercignani Cristofano Roncalli (known as Pomarancio). Among the many palaces are mentioned Vicariale Palace, the Praetorian Palace, the Museo Casa Bicocchi, Palazzo Ricci (which displays a collection of ceramics from the XVI and XVII centuries) and the Palace Theatre De-Larderel, which together with the Theatre is home of the Brave cultural events.

The recent history of Pomarance is linked to the name of French engineer François De Larderel, which began the construction of complex Larderello, using geothermal energy from the ground. The landscape here is characterized by huge pipes which lead the steam to power and the cooling towers, creating an unusual atmosphere, deserving the name "Valley of the Devil." We recommend visiting the Museum of ENEL Geothermal, where live demonstrations of the power emitted by an endogenous force head. Geothermal energy is still exploited through the latest technology to provide electricity and heating in the area.


Excursion destination is the imposing Rocca Sillana (XII century), situated in a dominant position and particularly striking when illuminated at night. Nearby you can still see the remains of the church of San Giovanni (sec. X) in the Romanesque style with elements of the Normans.

An interesting tour through medieval villages like Montecerboli, Serrazzano, Libbiano, San Dalmazio and Montegemoli (famous for its bread).

In the area are the forests and Monterufoli Berignone-Tatti, managed by the Mountain Community of Val di Cecina and added to the list of Protected Areas of the Region of Tuscany. The two forest systems are developed along the river Cecina, in a wild and untouched, where guided tours are available for hikers.
