Some information about:
The Natural Park of Montoni:
lying between the Cornia vallyes and the Pecora valley, in the hilly chain of Massa Marittima and Suvereto, the park extends some 8000 hectares. These hills, which are at a medium altitude, are covered with woodlands that create a landscape of vegetation that has an anthropic evolution. The history of Montioni is linked to that of coal, woodcutting and the layers of alum which is used to tan hides and fix colours in materials. Discovered in 1474, they were worked for only a few years, but were later reopened in 1804, when Felice and Elisa Baciocchi, Princes of Piombino, founded the mineral village that can still be seen today (Montioni Nuovo), with its open underground mines, furnaces and transport systems for the materials.
