Area: The castle know as the “Fortress of Berignone” (from the name of the forest in which it is located, a large forest complex that even today still maintains its incredible natural beauty), “Castle of the Bishops” or simply “Torraccia”, is an important fortification south of Volterra on a rocky spur where the Rio canyon and the Sellate stream meet, in the upper Cecina valley. There is documentation of the castle already in the year 896 when Adalberto Marquis of Tuscany gifts it to Alboino, the Bishop of Volterra. Since then it has been a fortress and also the residence of the Bishops of Volterra (hence its name), used for administering justice, for minting coins, but above all as a refuge during the long struggle against the Comune. More than once, the Bishops retreated in order to avoid retaliation as they did after their victory in Benevento when they escaped to the fortress in order to avoid the assault of the Ghibellines.Today, only ruins remain to dominate this vast forest, populated by boar, deer, and birds of prey, but just by looking at these ruins one can imagine the architectural strength and elegance of these ancient buildings.
