Cascatelle di Chia

Downstream of the Colle Casale castle there are the delightful Chia waterfalls, of artificial origin as can be seen from the remains of masonry, hydraulic works that constituted a series of reservoirs that functioned as accumulation tanks for the underlying mills.
You reach these mills by continuing to descend along the Rio ditch along a path which is of evident Etruscan origins. The place is spectacular with very high walls looming on the left and imposing giants' potholes on the right. We then reach the first mill where the wheat was ground, it still retains a large part of the elevations, but the roofs and attics have collapsed. The mighty millstones remain there.
A little further on is the oil mill, which is in the worst state of conservation.
Just on the left there is a small but interesting Etruscan necropolis, with arcosolium tombs, in a partially natural underground structure located in a small dovecote. In front of them there is a stretch of Etruscan wall whose function is unknown.
From the path you can reach some spectacular sites of nearby Bomarzo, the settlement of Santa Cecilia, the Pyramid of Bomarzo, the settlement of Cagnemora.
