Situated on a hill from which it dominates the sea and the surrounding countryside, Campiglia Marittima is one of the most beautiful villages in the Val di Cornia, on the Etruscan Coast.
In this ancient medieval castle, rich in history and traditions, the streets, cobbled alleys and buildings – arranged in concentric semicircles – give a sense of great harmony.
The historic center is all gathered inside the walls, and its characteristic squares are lined with artisan shops, museums and typical taverns.
The small village opens into a profile of gulfs, promontories and islands: The landscape paints the sea mirror between the Argentario Promontory and the Barattio Gulf with an evocative panorama of the Tuscan Archipelago and, when the sky permits, up to the coasts of the north of Corsica.
Among the main attractions of Campiglia certainly include the Rocca di Campiglia and the Palazzo Pretorio.
The churches in the historic center are also particularly interesting.
The “Apriti Borgo” event takes place in August: a festival of street arts theater, with events and shows in the streets of the ancient village, which
combines shows and local gastronomy.
