    Across the uneven square is this tiny church. It is elegant in its simplicity. Inside the interior is almost sparse in comparison to most Italian churches but it has a quiet, crepuscular calm. Free to enter.

    Compared to the nearby "Buca delle Fate", Cala San Quirico ("Cala" = cove) is much less known, for more reasons.
    For those who walk along the Piombino promontory, the Buca delle Fate is the first accessible beach you come across, whether you arrive from the Gulf of Baratti through the # 302 coastal path, or whether you arrive from the so-called “Reciso” car park through the # 301 path (direct, then shorter). And also the beauty of the Buca delle Fate is such, that one isn't encouraged to walk further.
    Cala San Quirico instead meets first only if you arrive through the # 302 coastal path in south-north direction (the online map of the paths of the Piombino promontory is available in some websites, e.g. "toscanacostaetrusca.it").
    The cove is located on the site where a deep valley carved into the promontory's body reaches the sea; it features a beach composed mainly of large rocks. Even the seabed near the shore is stony, and also has outcrops of large rocks, evidently consumed by the swell over millennia.
    Off these rocks the sea becomes deeper so you can swim, but I haven't experienced it by myself; in fact I visited the cove in March, when swimming is unthinkable, except for a few brave people.
    However, both the cove in itself and the paths that give access to it allow gorgeous views on the nearby Elba island, on the farthest Capraia, and by clear weather also on Corsica.
    Moreover the inaccessible nature of the place, and its remoteness from any road, make these places unique on the whole coast of Tuscany (apart from the islands) and therefore a visit is strongly recommended.

    This is an amazing place! I recommend getting there with a long walk from Calamoresca so that you can see one of the most beautiful places of Tuscany! Bring your lunch and enjoy the day and the sea!
