Le Balze – de dramatische rotsen van Volterra

  • Le Balze – de dramatische rotsen van Volterra

    Het platteland rondom Volterra bestaat uit zacht glooiende heuvels, onderbroken in het westen door het woeste en ongelooflijke spektakel van abrupte kloven dat bekend staat als Le Balze, ‘de Rotsen’. Door de eeuwen heen hebben deze diepe geulen, gecreëerd door de voortdurende erosie van lagen zand en klei, de vestingwerken, kerken en nederzettingen opgeslokt. De Etruskische muren die hier ooit stonden vielen ten prooi aan een aardverschuiving, evenals de vroegchristelijke graven. Vandaag de dag staat de Badia, een 11e-eeuwse abdij, naast een afgrond in afwachting van zijn onvermijdelijke lot. Voor het perfecte uitzicht over dit dramatische landschap loop je richting het westen de San Francesco Poort door en passeer je de Borgo San Giusto totdat je Le Balze bereikt (een wandeling van 20 minuten).
