The village is in the centre of the Pisan province, between Pontedera and Volterra. It is situated on a hill, in a very suggestive position.
The first official evidence of Terricciola dates back to 1109 when it is quoted 'Pieve a Pava', nowadays 'Pieve a Pitti' after a donation of Volterra Archbishop Ruggieri.
The village was alternatively dominated by Pisa and Florence until 1406 when it eventually fell into the hands of Florence and follow the fortunes of Granducato di Toscana first and of united Italy after.
Nowadays the village still offers the typical structure of the medieval centre, its origin as a castle with its narrow streets and medieval buildings.
