Castiglione della Pescaia is an ancient village on the sea, between Punta Ala and Grosseto Marina. The ancient part is like a balcony on the Tyrrhenian. It is the home of a tourist port that offers daily trips to the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Castiglione della Pescaia boasts ancient origins: the first traces of inhabitants in this area go back about sixty thousand years. While the first settlement was at Vetulonia, the very old town that the Etruscans built on the shores of lake Prile (which no longer exists). The Romans were based, however, in the village of Salebrone. This was well-known for its moderate climate, lake Pescoso and its surroundings rich in game. After the fall of the Roman empire and the Barbarian raids, in 962 Castiglione succumbed to Pisa, which was ruled by Otto 1st of Saxony, emperor of Germany. Pisa exploited its riches and didn’t take care of the port shelving or the waters of the lake Prile, which were stagnating & were the cause of increasing malaria epidemics.
