Vie Cave: Ancient paths of Etruscan people carved into the rocks
The Etruscan road network, vertically carved into the tuff
An impressive Etruscan road network, vertically carved into the tuff (sometimes 6 meters high), links Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano, in Maremma, Tuscany. Originally, Vie Cave ( sunken roads) linked Estruscan necropolis and settlements.
Later Vie Cave or Cavoni, became part of the Roman road system connecting the area to Via Clodia in Lazio.
During middle ages sacred images were placed along the way to ward off evil spirits.
