Share
In the heart of the Maremma rises Magliano in Toscana, a characteristic village whose historic center is surrounded by a fine wall built between the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance period. The walls are opened by three doors: Porta Nuova, Porta San Martino and Porta San Giovanni. In the center of the village is the Romanesque church of San Giovanni Battista, built in the thirteenth century. Outside the walls, near Porta San Giovanni, stands the church of SS. Annunziata.
