But today is a special city, I really liked it, you will never forget such a place! Like any other in Italy, believe me!)))
Pitigliano - a heavenly Etruscan-medieval ghost town in the Grosetto province of Southern Tuscany
This city is broken into the rocks at 400 meters above sea level, has the status of a state national park with a unique nature! The city of natural rocks and caves, built by human hands.
The height of the walls of these man-made stone passages in some places reaches twenty meters! You can imagine that these roads, houses in caves were built with tools that could have been available two and a half thousand years ago. Isn't that impressive!
There is a church in Pitigliano Chiesa di San Rocco, and the legends about Saint Roch, to whom this church is dedicated, are very interesting. I will not tell the legend, when you visit the city, be sure to stop by and read about the dog that saved during the plague.
The medieval Jewish ghetto also deserves attention. Jews fled to Pitigliano, who were oppressed in Rome. Their ghetto was very prosperous, there is a synagogue that is still operating. The ancient Romanesque cathedral with a huge bell tower was built in the Middle Ages in honor of the apostles Peter and Paul.
The courtyards of Pitigliano are well maintained and carefully decorated with flowers and greenery. Here you can feel the breath of life that has not left the ancient city.
This city left an indelible impression on me, I hope you will be delighted with visiting the ghost town.
