Calcata is a medieval town in Viterbo north of Rome. The dense habitat is topping a steep hill. It is only accessible through one city gate. We spent a few hours in Calcata saturday morning. The visit gave an impression of great attention to detail and a common care for the medieval townscape by the inhabitants. The narrow streets, small scale entrances and steep stairs were in impressive contrast to the dramatic placement of the town.
