Perched on a spot overlooking the hills of Tuscany, Montemerano is certainly one of the most beautiful and special destinations in the Maremma. Its historic centre is among the most interesting in the area thanks to its rich medieval architectural elements.
The building that best represents the town is the Church of San Giorgio, dedicated to the patron saint. The structure was built during the Middle Ages and today houses important works of art, paintings and frescoes dating back mostly to the Renaissance. Just outside Montemerano, we find the Church of Our Lady of Cavalluzzo surrounded by the Maremma countryside and numerous olive groves.
The history of the village began under the Aldobrandeschi, followed by the Basque, the powerful city of Orvieto, the Republic of Siena and, following the fate of the other territories of the Maremma, was incorporated in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and subjected to the power of the Medici family.
