Campiglia Marittima


Share
Located on a hill dominating the Val di Cornia, Campiglia Marittima is an ancient medieval village immersed in the fertile and luxuriant nature of the Maremma, standing out among olive trees, rows of vines and the unique Mediterranean scrub that frames a landscape of great historical charm, a former land of conquest of Etruscans, Romans and barbarians in the High Middle Ages.

About the village

Among the main attractions of Campiglia there is the beautiful Palazzo Pretorio, once a symbol of political and military power, which dominates the other buildings thanks to an imposing tower with clock and bell. Today the Palazzo Pretorio houses the Historical Archive, the Children's Library "Il palazzo dei Racconti", the Carlo Guarnieri Museum and the Museum of the Minerals, curated by the Tuscan Mineralogical Circle. You have to visiti two churches in particular: the Pieve di San Giovanni, a splendid example of the Romanesque-Tuscan style, and the Church of San Lorenzo, dating back to the thirteenth century and built inside the city walls. We also point out the nineteenth-century Teatro dei Concordi, famous for events and conferences.
Around Campiglia Marittima the Archaeological Mining Park of San Silvestro extends for about 450 hectares, where the fascinating Rocca San Silvestro is located, i.e. an ancient mining village founded in the Middle Ages to exploit the copper, lead and silver deposits.
In the Park, the Museum of Archeology and Minerals and the Temperino Mine are open to the public: a 360-meter gallery where you can only enter equipped with a protective helmet to understand how minerals were extracted from antiquity to the present days. Finally, in Campiglia Marittima there is the ancient thermal establishment of Venturina Terme, called Caldane in Etruscan-Roman times.

San Fiorenzo

From the blog

Leghorn mullets are a symbol of this Tuscan city inseparably linked to the sea and derive from an ancient Sephardic recipe, the "mullet alla mosaica". The ingredients needed to make the mullets of Livorno are of extraordinary simplicity: fresh mullets and tomato pulp.
