Valle del Treja, Calcata

#1 of 8 in Wildlife in Province of Viterbo
Perched on a hilltop, Valle del Treja both generates new culture and preserves the old. The medieval town was abandoned in the 1930s under the government's order, for fear the volcanic cliffs at its base would collapse. In the 1960s, local artists began to repopulate the deserted historical center, once again filling it with life. Today the vibrant town supports a thriving artistic community of about 100 artists and bohemians. Visit the site to admire its seamless blend of ruins and masonry with restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. Planning Calcata trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
