Montemerano is a small medieval village in the hills between Saturnia and Manciano. Montemerano’s historic centre is surrounded by three walls, built in various phases between the Middle Ages and 1500s. By crossing the doors, you enter a small magical and picturesque universe, where “time has stopped and silence is heard”, as recited by a plaque that recalls the ancient Pieve monastery.
The characteristic Castle Square, unchanged from the Middle Ages and surrounded by ancient stone buildings, is one of the most enchanting corners of Montemerano. It is preceded by an ancient arch at the end of an uphill sloping road. Other important buildings are the fortress, the theater, once the Pieve di San Lorenzo, and the remaining ancient gateways to the village: Saint George’s Gate, the Roman Gate and the Grossetana Gate.
The Church of St. George overlooks the Church Square. Its construction dates back to the Romanesque period. The church interior houses several important works of art, dating back to the Renaissance period. The most important is the Madonna and Child on the throne with saint child, a polyptych by Sano di Pietro.
Another masterpiece is the “Madonna della Gattaiola”, painted around 1450 by an anonymous artist called Montemerano’s Master. Its peculiarity is a hole at the bottom of the picture. Legend has it that a priest used the table as the door of a warehouse and cut the hole to allow cats to pass through, giving the painting its name.
Montemerano is 5 km from Agriturismo Poggio Mirabile and can be reached in about 10 minutes by car.
