The view on the "caves" is particularly impressive :
it is a phenomenon subject to landslides similar to the cliffs
in Volterra, which has swallowed up the most ancient buildings
over the centuries.
The Romanesque church (XII century) keeps its austere
original façade, while the interior readapted between the
XVIII and XIX century still preserves a nave and two side aisles
and is enriched with frescos and valuable works of art.
The theatre of the "Coraggiosi"
dates back to the XIX century: it has been built according to
the canons of the Italian classic theatre, shaped like a horseshoe
with the stalls and three
orders of boxes. Recently restored , it has become a place for
shows, concerts and cultural events. There are several courtly
palaces of the same period which flank Via Roncalli.
Among them Casa
Bicocchi, a perfectly preserved residence with a
complete furniture and open to the public; Palazzo de
Larderel with a neoclassic style, once owned by the de
Larderels, a family who started up the exploitation of the boraciferous
fumaroles; Palazzo Ricci which houses the town
hall library and an interesting collection of ceramics of Pomarance
dating back to the XVI and XVII century. In the Misericordia you
