The Castle is home to palaces that were the property of the area’s main landowners; the Fattoria Arcivescovile (Archbishop's Farm) is particularly impressive as the historic building that was once the Town Hall headquarters and overlooks the sea and the surrounding hills. In the village, take a moment to appreciate the stunningly well-preserved towers, the splendid cistern and the Church of Sant'Ilario.
The parish church houses a beautiful 14th century wooden crucifix and a remarkable painting dedicated to the Madonna delle Grazie, dating back to the 15th century. The Civic Archaeological Museum is found inside Palazzo Bombardieri, displaying important evidence of the settlements that have lived here from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages.
The Poggetti Park is also well worth a visit; under the shade of maritime pines and Mediterranean scrub, you’ll be able to see the most incredible panoramic view ranging from Castiglioncello to the Gulf of Baratti.
Rosignano Marittimo is the perfect terrain to explore on foot, thanks to a network of routes and paths in the area’s nature that will lead you to uncover breathtaking traces of history, such as the wash-houses at Fonte dei Poggetti and the windmill.
