The Val di Cecina territory is characterized by its high historical-cultural value as well as by its natural treasures. Home to three important nature reserves, the area hosts the Berignone, the Monterufoli-Caselli and the Montenero, which stretch for over 7,100 hectares, crossing the municipalities of Pomarance, Monteverdi Marittimo, Montecatini Val di Cecina and Volterra. The Monterufoli-Caselli nature Reserve is particularly noteworthy thanks to its pristine biodiversity. The site of two vast forests, this reserve is of regional importance. These great woodsy areas are characterized by a network of rivers – the Sterza and the Trossa and it is considered one of Tuscany’s most important wilderness areas.
