|The name of the necropolis gives a perfect idea of what appears before our eyes. The graves have different types of construction: the oldest, dating from the end of the eighth century. The burial chambers consist of a simple pit or chamber excavated in the tuff. These rooms date from the middle of the seventh century, while the larger chamber graves, consisting of different grave cells, date from the end of the same century.
Later these cellars were used for all sorts of other purposes, for storage of tools, shelters for animals, etc. These interventions have thoroughly changed the primitive characteristics.
We make a small loop along the most important and beautiful graves, then return to our path (WP 4) where we turn right and walk back to the bridge over the Fiora.
Necropoli di Selva Miccia
If we turn right and follow path 002 in the direction of Manciano, we can visit a second necropolis, the necropoli di Selvia Miccia.
We walk west to the path Poggio Buco Terra Rossa, where we turn left and immediately left again (WP 11 and 12).
We continue on this path (mbt)on the left and find the Necropolis Selva Miccia after about 7.3 km on the right of the road, between our path and the river.
