Magliano in Toscana

Magliano in Tuscany

The municipal territory, rich in numerous settlements from the Etruscan era, includes the characteristic towns of Pereta and Montiano, of medieval origins. The historic center is surrounded by a wall built between the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Morphologically, the municipal area has a short coastal stretch that is mainly high and rocky, with the exception of the sandy Cala di Forno. The hinterland consists of a flat stretch of the Maremma, closed to the west by the Uccellina Mountains and to the east by the foothills of the Albegna and Fiora hills. The innermost part of the municipal territory alternates between modest hilly reliefs and some valleys which wind their way between the hills following the course of tributary streams on the right of the Albegna.

Magliano preserves the medieval city walls intact: they are formed by stone walls, sometimes decorated with blind arches and battlements, interspersed with 9 towers and equipped with 3 access doors. Taken together, the walls are intact, with the characteristic Renaissance stylistic elements clearly evident.


To visit there are the San Bruzio Monastery, in ruins in the southeast countryside; the Palace of Checco the Handsome, today it is used as a residential building; the Church of San Giovanni Battista of Romanesque origin but with a composite appearance due to subsequent transformations; the Palazzo del Podesta, or Palazzo dei Priori, a historic building built in 1425. The building is in late Gothic style, typical of Sienese architectural schemes of the fifteenth century.


The Olivo della Strega, is a monumental plant in an olive grove adjacent to the Romanesque church of SS. Announced. The tree is considered one of the oldest in Italy, it is made up of two individuals, one old, aged around 3000-3500 years, now dead, which formed the gigantic base on which the new sucker was born, which has become a tree .
The name of the Strega olive tree is due to some figures or representations that could be guessed rather than seen, particularly at certain times of the day, such as towards sunset, when the shadows begin to create suggestions, on the trunk or on the wrinkled, twisted, sculpted branches from wind and weather.
