The tower of Salto della Cervia

The tower of Salto della Cervia

The territory of Versilia lies within the Municipality of Pietrasanta between the Apuan Alps and the coast. This small town developed along the ancient Roman Aurelia road and in the Middle Ages was at the centre of fierce territorial conflicts between Lucca and the many feudal lords who defended their hilltop castles; later it was also contended by Pisa and by Florence, willing as they were to expand their trade to the sea.

The Tower of Salto della Cervia near Pietrasanta, just a few meters from today's state route and railway, was precisely one of the fortresses the Florentine government used to defend this coastal area in the XVIth century.

The tower is public property and is open to visitors.
