Church of Sant’Ottaviano alla Nera in Volterra

with hut cover

The church of Sant’Ottaviano is a small building, with a gabled roof, entirely made of stone.
On the facade there is a decorated portal, while other decorative elements are found all around. Above the portal there is a quadrangular mullioned window with architrave supported by a small column.

The church is remembered from documents since 1161. It was a suffragan of the church of the Nera and was built along the road that connected Volterra with Florence. In its vicinity, during the Middle Ages, a tax was levied by the Municipality which also held a warehouse for the storage of salt that went to Florence./p>
