Porta Rocca
Italy, Orvieto, May 2007

Orvieto is located on a flat summit of a volcanic tuff. The location of the city is one of the most dramatic in all of Europe as it rises above the vertical faces of the tuff cliffs. The entire picture is completed by the defensive walls of the city, which were built by the same stones. The ancient city was populated since Etruscan times (800-110 BC): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orvieto
