The pool was carved from an ancient limestone quarry, which supplied most of the stone used to build Porta dell’Arco, one of the principal gateways of Volterra as well as Pignano’s own buildings.
The pool’s depth varies from 0.75 to 2.40 meters with a total surface area of 141 sq. meters. It is surrounded by a limestone terrace with chaises longues and parasols. Adjacent to the pool area there is an outdoor bar and a manicured lawn for those seeking tranquility.
A small, separate swimming pool, built specially for children, is available for all children under the age of twelve.
