The village of San Cipriano
of medieval origin
San Cipriano is located just north of Volterra, along the Pisan provincial road, between Montebradoni and Molino d’Era.
The village was born in the Middle Ages around a small hospital with the title of Verano in San Cipriano and it is found named in the diocesan tithes of 1302-1303 and 1356. The hospital was closed in 1383 and reunited with the hospital of Santa Maria Maddalena di Volterra.
The church soon became a parish church, also annexing the small church of Sant’Orsola in Ripabianca, or Ripalbella, a toponym survivor at a nearby farm.
Within the small village there are some places of interest: the Church of San Cipriano, the Villa Ormanni and the
