Montioni Park: an oasis of nature and history in Maremma

Unique biodiversity and a rich historical heritage.

In the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, surrounded by luxuriant woods, Mediterranean maquis and breathtaking views, lies the Montioni Park, a protected area of 8,000 hectares that preserves a unique biodiversity and a rich historical heritage.

The park is located just inland from Follonica and covers the provinces of Grosseto and Livorno, touching no less than five municipalities.

The park is characterised by a very high biodiversity with a varied flora and fauna that includes even rare animals such as the Wolf, the Wildcat and the Marten. Explore the unspoilt trails on foot, by bicycle or on horseback and admire the lush flora with Mediterranean maquis and rare orchids and tall forests.

The latter were historically important for the production of firewood and charcoal, the latter largely destined for the grand ducal foundries of Follonica.

The Montioni Park is also of historical and archaeological interest thanks to the ancient alunite quarries, dating back to the time of Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi. Here you can also visit the medieval remains of la Pievaccia and the ancient castle of Montioni Vecchio, a stronghold dominating the valley.

A magical place where nature, history and culture come together in perfect harmony.
