The “borgo” of Montegemoli

with traces of an ancient castle

The town Montegemoli follows almost exactly the structure of the ancient castle that used to be there and of which only a few remains are left. It was located in the center of an area full of pools of saltwater and the mechanisms used to extract the salt through steam. It was an important production center for the municipality of Volterra, but it started to depopulate after the 14th century.
