BELFORTI TOWER

   

Perched up on its hill

Looking over Volterra and its Fortress

The tower was built in the 14th century by the noble family Belforti, who was dominating Volterra at the time. Built on top of ancient fortresses, visitors can now access it and be enchanted by its view of the rolling hills and the sea.

The tower is almost 30 meters tall and 3.20 meters wide at its base. It was built using blocks of stone from Montecatini and horizontal sections of white Alberese marble at the bottom of the structure.

The tower doesn’t have an embattled cornice, but two holes were made in the structure in order to allow the Belforti family to have a direct look on the tower of the Fortress of Volterra and on the Rocca Sillana.
