The picturesque town is built on an unusual platform of trachyte rock and boasts panoramic views over the Grosseto plain. It was a feud of the Aldobrandeschi family until the beginning of the 14th century, when it passed under the domain of the Sienese, and then under the Medici. The area, partially covered by turkey oak, oak and chestnut forests, is cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, which yield superior products. A warm reception and the local gastronomic specialties that may be enjoyed at the small restaurants and numerous village fairs ensure an enjoyable visit.
There are many trekking, horse-back riding and mountain-bike itineraries. The 120 km of Trekking Roccastrada and the Via Equestre Grossetana Route allow ample possibilities to enjoy uncontaminated nature inside the Natural Reserves of “Farma” and “La Pietra”. The territory offers a wealth of towers and medieval hamlets as well: Montemassi and Roccatederighi are outstanding examples. Montemassi is high on the Maremma plain, nestled around the Aldorandeschi castle, and has narrow streets that cut in the rock. Roccatederighi is a beautiful town, camouflaged among trachyte rock shaped by wind and rain.
