  • So neglected as to seem abandoned. Adjacent to the complex of the Fishpond, is quick and easy. Is particular to the Fiora River that passes beneath the floor, visible through a glass plate, whose area you can illuminate with 1 euro.

  • The small and somewhat neglected Church of our Lady of the snows in Santa Fiora is also called "the pool" because of his close relationship with water. Once here stood the Fishpond, which collected the waters of the river Fiora while all around were the workshops of the craftsmen who exploited the waters to carry out their activities. Starting from 1400 locals began to recount the miracles of the Virgin Mary in a tabernacle on the road; to protect it, they built the Church that ended up being exactly over a brook that flowed in fishpond. The waters were channeled and even today you can see through a pane of glass on the floor of the Church at a cost of one euro. This site owes its strength to its proximity to the water, it is not uncommon that the churches were built close to the sources which fed the sacred rites in particular baptism. In this case, however, the water is flowing under the building, creating an aura of energy even more intense. Subsurface cavities are preserved old sediments of millennia, traces of volcanic phenomena and earthquakes that formed the Earth's crust. The water crossing these ravines, absorbs and carries all the information contained in rocks and when it rises to the surface free energy harvested from the bowels of the Earth. Also in its continuous flow, the water rubs soil and stones charging electrically. Therefore based on potential flow theory, you create a differential between negative charges formed along the walls of rocks rubbing and positive charges that are carried by the current flow. Sometimes rubbing is so vibrant that generate heat and vaporize the water which, being an electrical conductor, he channels the energy rolling it up to the surface. This energy can be beneficial or even harmful depending on some features, like the winding roads and the intensity of the stream. If the current is legit (not too fast or too slow) energy will be positive, if not negative. The underground stream here is direct and generates positive energy, can upload the Madonna della Neve and those who visit it. Never as a "walk on water" is so evocative. Recommend a visit to this church to all travelers and invite them to not dwell only on the outer side of the holy place somewhat overlooked, but to feel the power of water under my feet with all that entails. Check the excellence exclusively to symbolic, esoteric and evocative of the place, hoping that a large influx of visitors would lead those responsible to restore and enhance this site perhaps creating a Tuscan water path due to proximity with the famous town Spa of Bagno Vignoni the equally charming village of Bagni di San Filippo and the famous spas of Saturnia.

  • From under the Church flows one of the springs of Fiora and the glass floor you can see the water flowing between the rocks the Church is simple yet beautiful.
