“Medieval Gem" for the beauty of its Romanesque and Gothic buildings and "Massa Metallorum" for the importance of its mines. It is a jewel case where everything has retained the harmonious proportions of an old city of art, a summation of its important monuments, the Torre del Candeliere, the Fortezza dei Senesi, the Palazzo dell'Abbondanza and the Fonti dell'Abbondanza. The narrow streets and historic centre abound in fountains, loggias and homes of notable personages dating from the middle ages. The streets of Massa Marittima display a veritable collection of
extraordinary and unforgettable Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
Above all, the Piazza del Duomo, the heart and soul of the city. Here, religious and civil architecture coexist without rivalry.
