Castelnuovo di Val di Cecina

Castelnuovo di Val di Cecina (PI) Toscana

Shaped unusually like a pine cone, Castelnuovo is a village of narrow stone alleyways and medieval influences, such as the parish church which houses a crucifix from the early 14th century, a fine example of Pisa’s sculpture traditions. Around the village are lush chestnut forests which turn from deep green in the summer to yellow, red and brown when autumn arrives. Stroll to the neighborhood of Sasso, where the valley of the River Cornia begins and you can observe the natural phenomenon of the “putizze” (cold gas shoots) and “fumarole” (gaseous emissions accompanied by steam), caused by the intense geothermal activity in the area.
