Massa Marittima
Massa Marittima, an excellent example of Romanesque architecture from the period 1225-1335, is set in the Colline Metallifere where lead, copper and silver were mined as early as Etruscan times. The Romanesque Gothic duomo in Piazza Garibaldi is dedicated to St. Cerbone, a 6th century saint whose story is sculpted in stone above the main portal.
