The Pisan fort

An extraordinary panoramic view of the coast and Elba Island

Marciana
The Pisan fort sits on the highest part of the town of Marciana. It was constructed by the Pisans in the twelfth century and was reinforced by the Appians in the middle of the fifteenth century.
The building as it stands today is square-shaped with four towers. From the walls there is a wonderful view of Monte Capanne (1019m) and all the way to the crystal waters around Elba Island. In the summer, the fort’s internal courtyard is used for concerts and cultural events.
