The medieval hamlet of Montemerano was commissioned during the XIII century by the Aldobrandeschi family on the highest part of the hill, surrounded by the countryside, along the road that from Manciano leads to Saturnia. The square of the castle is very scenic and perfectly intact in its medieval attitude and the houses made of stone.
Its threshold is constituted by an arch which opens at the end of a short and steep slope. Also beautiful is the Church of San Giorgio, a jewel of Romanesque art which preserves an exceptional collection of artworks of the Renaissance.
