Capalbio is on a hill in the south extremity of Tuscany near the border with the Lazio region, the hill is covered with teh typical lush vegetation of Maremma. In its territory is a small coastal strip near which there is also the Lake of Buriano, one of the few coastal lacustrin basin. The town in Middle Ages was administered by the Aldobrandeschi until in thirteenth century was conquered by Orvieto. Later came under the control of the Orsini of Siena, this is the period of greatest splendor for the city: were built the walls, houses, churches, and was completed the Rocca started by the Aldobrandeschi family. Following the invasion of the Spanish troops, allies of the Medici against Siena, a severe economic and demographic crisis affects Capalbio. The consequent depopulation is mainly due to the unhealthy air of Maremma and the fact of being in a marginal position than the big road networks. In '800 Capalbio was aggregated to the nearby town of Orbetello, this status lasted until 1960. Capalbio is a busy tourist center, attracting visitors is, above all, its suggestive air of medieval town that has preserved over time many remains of this period. You can still walk the rampart walk along the walls that surround it and one of the gates, Porta Senese, always uses the original doors of the '400. On the coast there are other fortifications built between the '500 and' 700 as the Tower of Buranaccio and Fort of Macchiatonda. Castle Capalbiaccio rises instead inland not far from Lake San Floriano, there remain only a few ruins including some archaeological excavations that have unearthed the remains of a fortified village, a tower and a church.|CapalbioFarm Holidays a Capalbio
