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).

Palio Horse Race in Siena (Tuscany) - The Day of The Race

The Palio di Siena (known locally simply as Il Palio) is a horse race that is held twice each year, on 2 July and 16 August, in Siena, Italy. Ten horses and riders, bareback and dressed in the appropriate colours, represent ten of the seventeen contrade, or city wards. The Palio held on 2 July is named Palio di Provenzano, in honour of the Madonna of Provenzano, a Marian devotion particular to Siena which developed around an icon from the Terzo Camollia. The Palio held on 16 August is named Palio dell'Assunta, in honour of the Assumption of Mary.

Sometimes, in case of exceptional events or local or national anniversaries deemed relevant and pertinent ones, the city community may decide for an extraordinary Palio, run between May and September.
