The source of San Felice

Next to the small church

The source of San Felice in Volterra is one of the most important hydraulic structures of the medieval city and consists of a large stone basin, partly excavated in the ground, which is protected by a roof supported by two stone arches.
The construction rests on the side of the hill, the back wall and the side walls are made of masonry.
From an inscription preserved in the façade we know that the source was built in 1319 under the direction of Chelino Ducci Tancredi by order of the dancers of the district of Santo Stefano.
