Poggio Capanne

The village, situated on top of a small hill, has kept its original appearance and each house has its own history. Founded in middle of the fifteenth century by the Republic of Siena, the huts form a small village in the heart of the Maremma, with the various dates of the village’s evolution carved on the door of some buildings.
