Rio Nell'Elba

Protected on a hill in the north-eastern part of Elba, Rio nell’Elba is one of the islands oldest settlements with origins going back to the Bronze Age.

Protected on a hill in the north-eastern part of Elba, Rio nell’Elba is one of the islands oldest settlements with origins going back to the Bronze Age.

Volterraio Castle which dominates the bay of Portoferraio is of great interest. It was built on the remains of an Etruscan acropolis by the Pisans and it was attacked by Saracens on more than one occasion, however they were never able to win it. Thanks to its height (389 metres a.s.l.) it was an exceptional lookout point, and it was a refuge for the population when attacked by enemies. Today visitors have splendid views.

Not to be missed is a visit to the old washhouse with washing slabs from the 16th century, to the Valle dei Mulini (mill valley), and Saint Caterina Hermitage near Grassera, the town destroyed by the terrible Air Ad Din called Barbarossa in 1534. Also of interest is the Church of Saints Giovanni and Quirico, destroyed more than once in the Turkish incursions but always rebuilt.
