MASSA MARITTIMA
AND AMBROGIO LORENZETTI

Massa Marittima is a small medieval town of the ancient Maremma, historically linked to the activity of the nearby mines, known since ancient times. The hills and surrounding area, the Colline Metallifere, are fascinating.

TOUR

From Massa Vecchia, the lower part of the town, with its Romanesque aspect, center of episcopal and urban power, we’ll move towards Massa Nuova, the “new” part of the city, built in the first half of the XIII century by the ‘middle’ class. Here was the Sienese fortress.

We will also visit the Cattedrale of San Cerbone with its unique works and the picturesque and inexplicable Fontana dell’Abbondanza.
We’ll walk through the medieval streets of the city, visiting the small Museum of S. Pietro all’Orto, to admire the beautiful ‘Maestà’ by Ambrogio Lorenzetti.
