Travel Tips for Roccastrada

Pretty Hill Village

by BruceDunning

"A working village"

The territory of Roccastrada was the control of Roselle in Etruscan times and it remained so under the Romans and even during the Early Middle Ages (the Dark Ages). The Longobards controlled for years, but lost to Bishopri Roselle by Charlemagne to the Pope in the 787. The Aldobrandeschi family took over control. They maintained until the 13 century. The surrounding fortified towns and castles of Sassoforte, Montemassi, Roccatederighi are the most characteristic. These strongholds embody the immobility of an area that remained feudal for an extended period, excluded from the economic development that was taking place in central Tuscany. Sienna conquered all the castles of the area in 1200-1300's destroying the fortifications. The Plague in 1348 devastated the area and in the first half of 16th century Florence took over.
The people do notice visitors/straniero, but still go on their daily life. That is the fun part of being here and observing. Watch where you park. Local policia patrol and look for out of towners for a ticket

"Entering the village form the winding road"

This shows the sheer cliff that the village was built on. Parking space is a scarce commodity.

"Looking over the balcony"

The pictoral view is very nice from the clock tower, the highest spot in village. This is at the Piazza dell' Orolgio, and also houses the tourist center.
