STRUCTURE DESCRIPTION

"Four houses", surrounded by the splendid Mt. Cetona, lies at 756 metres above the sea.
The origins of Fontevetriana date back to the prehistoric settlements of the Bronze Age, as can be understood by the presence of nearby springs, a cave known as Toad’s Hole and its commanding position-excellent for defence.
Very few families have lived in this hamlet and three only-namely the Aggravi, Fastelli and Morgantini families-have lived here and worked the soil since the 17th century.
Fontevetriana was agricultural cum pastoral territory and the town council of Sarteano considered it important, henceforth the annual visit by the priors on Ascension Day.
An interesting fact-the local inhabitants of Fontevetriana during the 15th and 16th cnturies were well-known for their wolf hunting, something they had to do to protect their flocks.
From Fontevetriana you can reach the top of Mt Cetona (1148 metres above sea level) following a 4 Km road, very steep in parts and with many bends. The views and the magnificent countryside make it very worth the while.
The road takes you as far as a small clearing, on top of a lower mountain, and here is a good place to leave the car and continue on foot following an old donkey track.
Once you get to the top you’ll be struck by the solemn Cross, with its history written on stone underneath, and by the amazing views that extend from the hills of Lazio as far as the Maremma.
What a fantastic memory of Tuscany!
