Valle del Treja, Calcata

(3.9/5 based on 320 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Valle del Treja Park is worth a visit in any season. We were in the winter, just after a few days of rain, but with some caution in the walk we enjoyed this wonderful walk up in Calcata. Walk and challenging for those who are not accustomed, but filled with beautiful views!

  • After a nice visit to the Valle del Treja we decided to visit the ancient village of Calcata. Accessible from a parking lot located much higher up the country after a nice "drudgery" under the Sun. Definitely a pleasant village, desert, with some tourist looking for some kind of attraction. Just some little restaurant and a few bars. No mention of street artists as we were told. Maybe we came at the wrong time
