San Galgano and Massa Marittima
13 March 2020

20 km away, in the direction of Siena, in the municipality of Monticiano, it is possible to visit the most striking place in this part of Tuscany: the Abbey of San Galgano, with the Hermitage of Montesiepi, home of the Sword in the rock. Continuing along the road through woods and hills, we reach Massa Marittima, a splendid town, whose cathedral and noble palaces are worth seeing in May and August, the Balestro del Girifalco, one of the most important historical re-enactments in Tuscany. On the way back, you can pass through the villages of Montemassi, with its castle, and Roccastrada, with a splendid panoramic terrace overlooking the hills of Maremma.
