e-borghi travel 2, Well-being and villages: Manciano: all-round well-being

It’s a tiny village set in the green Maremma, perched on a hill from the top of which your sight can stretch at 360° over a landscape that reaches the Argentario on the West side and the Giglio island, Giannutri, Montecristo and even Corsica on bright days then it disappears into the Tyrrhenian Sea while the Gran Sasso is stealing the show from the East side. If you stroll around the narrow streets of the village you’ll see several architectural styles starting with the massive castle with the panoramic tower on the top of the village then the towered walls dating back to the XVth century and the churches of San Leonardo and SS. Annunziata, both decorated with the important works by two painters from Manciano Pietro Aldi and Paride Pascucci that date back to the XIXth century then the interesting prehistoric museum of Fiora Valley that exhibits the finds dating back to the Palaeolithic Age. The tiny villages that are spread in the surrounding area are really beautiful since they tell about the flourishing Medieval past: Poggio Capanne and its amazing Renaissance square, Poggio Murella and its Castellum Aquarum dating back to the second half of the I century B.C., Marsiliana and its castle dating back to the XIIIth century and San Martino featuring a beautiful church in a Renaissance style with Moorish details, they all deserve a stop to join a journey back in time.
