On the hill of Poggio al Bruno, south of the Cecina course, looking onto the coastal plains, surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and cereal fields can be found Casale Marittimo, a place known since the VIII for its ancient Church of St. Andrew.
Divided between Casale Vecchio and Casale Nuovo, the town is reunited under its current name; of the fortified medieval village remain traces of wall and the two gates. This ancient village is immersed in green and a short distance from the sea.
Casale Marittimo also adds numerous archaeological sites, among which the famous“tholos” tomb, with cylinder tambour and central pillar from the VI century BC (currently conserved in the Archaeological Museum of Florence).
