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.
