As soon as you enter the little town all you'll need is but a quick glance to notice the imposing structure of the Fortezza Spagnola (Spanish Fort). Built high up in order to dominate the village, it was constructed in the seventeenth century, during the period of Spanish domination, in order to control the harbor. The building is in perfect condition and houses the permanent exhibitions of Memorie Sommerse (Sunken Memories) and Maestri d’Ascia (Shipwrights). In addition, from its terraces you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the surroundings.
On both sides of the peninsula there are many coasts where you can find sandy beaches as well as rocks. Here you can go swimming, snorkeling or windsurfing in the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, or just relax and enjoy the sun and breeze. You can take a boat trip around the Monte Argentario, or head over to the islands. Within one hours driving distance, in Saturnia, there are the ancient Spas of Saturnia.
