In the hinterland of Grosseto, between gentle Maremma hills overlooking the sea, Massa Marittima preserves in its old town an incredible architectural complex comprising them all buildings once necessary in the public life of the city municipal era. This is Piazza del Duomo situated at the highest point of the country so that to get there you have to climb along narrow streets paved with stone. The difficult path is repaid by the splendid spectacle of the square. Here can be admired, raised on a number of steps, the San Cerbone Cathedral dating from the mid-twelfth century. There are then the town hall, the Palazzo del Podesta, the Loggia del Mercato and just a short distance the Mint and the Public Fountain. The village is documented since the tenth century but it was only in heyday when it was an independent municipality, from 1255 to 1337, which were built all the beautiful buildings that we see today.
Massa Marittima has been awarded the Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club, a premium paid to the inland towns with tourist offer of extreme quality. The country is in fact surrounded by the National Park of the Metalliferous Hills of Grosseto, a green area rich in minerals and very marked by the mining that took place there in the past. A wonderful place where hiking and horseback riding in close contact with nature and the local historical memory. Massa Marittima is also separated from the sea just a few kilometers, the coast overlooked is particularly clear and pristine.
