Inhabited since the distant Bronze Age, it then became an Etruscan stronghold.
The ancient town, suspended in the void, at the confluence of three rivers and dizzying gorges, offers spectacular and unique views.
The Orsini Fortress, an imposing fortress, is considered the greatest architectural example of a medieval fortified structure in the Maremma.
Worth seeing are the Orsini Park, the church of S. Niccolò, the Palazzo Comitale, the Masso Leopoldino, the Porta dei Merli and in the surroundings the ruins of the church of S. Maria dell’Aquila near the thermal spring of Filetta.
