Piazza dei Priori – un chef d’œuvre médiéval

  • Piazza dei Priori – un chef d’œuvre médiéval

    Depuis l’arc étrusque, la Porta all’Arco, une charmante route serpente et remonte la colline jusqu’à la Piazza dei ¬Priori, la place phare de la ville. La Piazza dei Priori atteste du riche héritage médiéval de Volterra, avec son ensemble de palais de la noblesse. Le Palazzo dei Priori (1208), tout en hauteur, domine la place. C’est le plus ancien hôtel de ville de la Toscane et il aurait servi de modèle au Palazzo Vecchio de Florence. Même si son clocher et ses créneaux furent rénovés plus tardivement, il donne l’impression générale d’un hôtel de ville typiquement toscan. Par une belle journée, envisagez de gravir le clocher pour profiter de vues sur la ville. De l’autre côté de la place trône le Palazzo Pretorio, du XIIIe siècle, avec sa Torre del Porcellino crénelée (Tour du Petit Cochon), dont le nom vient de son illustration en relief et décorative d’un sanglier.
    Sur la place, rentrez dans l’Office du Tourisme pour récupérer une carte, et acheter un pass pour la ville, également connu sous le nom de Volterra Card. Vous pouvez également louer un guide audio pour visiter Volterra ou réserver une excursion à pied.
