Castiglione della Pescaia
n the heart of Maremma, Castiglione della Pescaia with its golden beaches and its crystalline waters, is one of the most loved places by the tourists. It was awarded with “5 Sails” from Legambiente for its sea and striking nature.
In the lower part of the town you can find shops, restaurants and bars; the medieval Castle lies in the district part, the oldest one.
Crossing the Urbica Door, through the streets, you can reach the headland, where you can have the most beautiful view of Castiglione della Pescaia and surroundings.
The San Giovanni’s Church, built in the XVI century, is also reachable through the Urbica door.
The Palace Centurioni, the most ancient building in Castiglione della Pescaia, was the centre of local administration; it has been recently renovated and its rooms are used for art exhibitions.
We suggest you to visit the Santa Maria del Giglio’s Church with its beautiful clock tower, and also the tomb of Italo Calvino, one of the most popular poets in Italian Literature.
