The Rocca di Pierle lies at the western end of the Niccone Valley. It is just in Tuscany and controlled the pass that lead towards Cortona and the Val di Chiana. In danger of collapsing, the remaining tower has been supported by a scaffold surround which doesn’t add to it’s looks but makes it safer for the inhabitants of the surrounding hamlet. I took these aerial photos yesterday – a beautifully clear late October day with great views down the valley, I hope you like them!
