The city is built on a rugged outcropping of ochre, yellow, grey and red volcanic tufa rock. These rocky ridges tower 150 meters over precipitous ravines where torrents run into the main flow of the river Lente. Elements of Etruscan times, Medieval times and Renaissance times still survive in and around Sorano today.
Among the ruins of the medieval town of Vitozza are three fortresses and two ancient churches. That me, where a church once stood.
