Campiglia Marittima is located in the center of the Val di Cornia enclosed between the hills on one side and the sea on the other.
The territory of Campiglia is rich in Etruscan, Roman and medieval testimonies . The village has in fact been inhabited since the 11th century, but even earlier in this same spot there were several Etruscan and Roman villages. Having been a strategic stronghold first of Pisa and then of Florence, Campiglia was an economic and military power of the area. It can also be recognized by its historic center which has been preserved almost intact in its medieval aspect . Even today it is possible to walk in narrow stone-paved alleys admiring squares, arches, courtyards and stately buildings.
In Campiglia Marittima there are numerous proposals for fun and relaxation for the whole family, starting with the countless paths and trails that intertwine in the surrounding countryside. These paths can be tackled by bicycle, on foot or on horseback by leaning on one of the many riding schools in the area.
Interesting to visit is the Archaeological Mines Park of San Silvestro which offers various itineraries, or the medieval Temperino mine now abandoned and used as an open-air museum.
