CHURCHES AND MONASTERIES

 
 

A place for the heart and the soul

Valdicecina offers you a range of itineraries to explore the breathtaking views and ancient silence of the area’s artistic and natural history

The whole Valdicecina has always been under Volterra’s diocese, which dates back to the 5th century.
Although most of the still-standing churches were built after the 10th century, there are some, for instance the Dome of Volterra, that are even older.

The bishop used to confer the religious administration of an area to the parish priests. Parish churches are like regular churches but with higher religious status and bigger funds. They used to have control over an area of the dioceses and smaller churches called suffragan.
