Giglio Castello is the fraction of the cumune of the Island of Giglio and rises in the highest area of the island.
What fascinates tourists are the perfectly preserved walls and towers that completely enclose the village.
Of medieval origins, Giglio Castello is characterized by the imposing Rocca Aldobrandesca, in Piazza XVIII Novembre, an imposing defensive construction that makes this village a suggestive destination with a unique charm.
The Church of San Pietro, from the 15th century, is the main church of the Giglio, in which the treasure of Pope Innocent XIII is kept and it is possible to admire a magnificent ivory Crucifix, by Giambologna. Inside are also the venerated relics of San Mamiliano, protector of the Island and of the Tuscan Archipelago.
