The town of Roccastrada is located in the province of Grosseto, its territory stretching from the plains of Maremma to the hills (colline metaliffere grossetane) for a total area of 280 sq km welcoming about 10,000 inhabitants. The village, built in medieval times, stands on a hill offering a wonderful view on crops in the valleys. Originally was a possession of the powerful family of Aldobrandeschi from Grosseto, then was conquered by the Republic of Siena after bitter fightings. The sienese were thus able to take advantage of the nearby mines of copper and silver until the middle of the '500 when Roccastrada joined the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. In the territory of the town you can see many rests of its former medieval splendor. Localities of Montemassi and Sassofortino are characterized both by a castle around which over time has come to form a small hamlet. The castles were built around 1000 as a protective fortifications against the Sienese, today the castle of Sassoforte already fallen in the '400, is a ruin, while the fortress of Montemassi has been restored and can be visited. Still standing is also the castle of Belagaio. Ancient villages, each with its own parish church, arise in the localities of Sticciano, Roccatederighi, Torniella and in the center of Roccastrada. In Giugnano is the Abbey of San Salvatore already known in 1076 and inhabited by the religious community of the Benedictines. To date it has been preserved only the part of the crypt with a semicircular apse and lombard-style decor. In Roccastrada are numerous nature and hiking trails that passed through the Maremma countryside. From here also passes the "Wine and Flavours Route" that allows to visit companies, wineries and local farms to end with the Museum of Vine and Wine in the center of town. Guided tours are held also inside the coal mine of Ribolla, closed since 1959.|RoccastradaFarm Holidays a Roccastrada
