Manciano is an important medieval village, set on a hill overlooking the Maremma area that stretches to the sea, about 30 km away. Due to its strategic position, it is called the “spy of Maremma”. The views that you enjoy from its panoramic points are among the most striking of Maremma and all of Tuscany.
Between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Manciano experienced a succession of domination: the Aldobrandeschi, the Orvietans, Siena, the Orsini, the Granducato of Tuscany. These events left many testimonies, which we can still admire today. The Rocca Aldobrandesca is at the highest point of the hill, overlooking the landscape with its square tower. Built in the 12th century, today it is the seat of the municipality. At various corners of the village we come across ancient military structures: large sections of the city walls, with some of the gates that allowed access to the city, the Cassero Senese and various towers, some of which were incorporated into buildings of the later ages.
Among the religious buildings, the most important is the Renaissance Church of San Leonardo, rebuilt in the 900s. It features a baptismal font dating back to the 1300s and the Medieval Torre Campanaria. Outside the city walls stands the Church of the Santissima Annunziata, with the sixteenth century Oratory.
The territory of the Fiora valley has been inhabited ever since. In Manciano, Poggio Buco, Pitigliano, Sovana, etc., there are numerous burials from the Palaeolithic to the end of the Bronze Age. The great number of finds has resulted in the Museo di Preistoria e Protostoria, housed inside Palazzo Nardelli.
Manciano is 6 km from Agriturismo Poggio Mirabile and can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. From there, you can quickly reach Saturnia, Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano.
