Just a little more than 410 m above sea level in the province of Pisa, Montecatini Val di Cecina links its history to the copper mines of Camporciano. The extraction was started by the Etruscans and carried forward, with few interruptions, until 1907. The country has been dominated by the family Belforti of Volterra until 1472 when it came under the direct control of Florence. It seems that Montecatini has managed to avoid the plague that struck the region in the '600 but accused still serious economic damage from which later recovered thanks to the profitable copper mines. Once ceased the collection of copper, Montecetini began to exploit the deposits of rock salt needed for the chemical plants of nearby Rosignano. In the old town there is Piazza del Castello which houses many of the medieval and renaissance structures preserved in the country. The quadrangular Belforti tower, with the thick walls banded white-black overlooks the square, that is completed by the Church of San Biagio and the fourteenth-century Palazzo Pretorio which now houses the documentation center of the Mining Museum. The nearby localities of Castel Querceto and Sassa are medieval villages that are worth a visit if only to admire the splendid panorama from the top of the hill on which are perched. The driving force of the economy of the town remains the extraction of minerals but tourism industry is increasing. In particular in the formula of the country house which favors and promotes the discovery of the wonders in this area. The most interesting events concern the local food and wine as "The flavors of the valley" in May, the "September montecatinese" and "Colors and flavors of an old town" in the middle of August. There you can taste the genuine products of the area and appreciate the ancient culinary traditions.|"Montecatini Val di Cecina"Hotel a Montecatini Val Di Cecina
