Montepescali village is very easy to reach, because it is located close to the State road (SS1) exit, not far from Grosseto.
It’s an hilltop village, that means that you can admire a stunning panorama from there, especially at the lookout that faces south.
The village has medieval origins and it’s built almost completely in stone and bricks. Here we can find the typical elements of the medieval village, an heritage of the Roman camp: high walls all around, two doors and the cassero, a gatehouse-tower built with bricks close to one door. From castrum comes the word cassero first, and castello (castle) then.
