Roccalbegna literally means “the rock of Albegna” – the river that divides the historic part of the town from the more recent one. After its foundation in medieval times, the city has passively followed the rest of the territory of Mount Amiata from the Aldobrandesca domination to the government of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, but has always stood out for the naturalistic spirit of its inhabitants and their love for large green spaces. .
The first thing you notice when arriving in Roccalbegna is its position. Squeezed between a fortress and the steep Mount Labbro, the town appears proud and shy; perfect portrait of its inhabitants, who have always tried to adapt to the environment without damaging the beautiful landscape.
Today Roccalbegna is the closest thing to an alpine refuge in Maremma, and staying there is a pleasure for all the senses, with the scent of burning wood, the sound of flowing water and the view over the woods of the valley of the Albegna.
