Montorsaio – an historical village to visit while you are on vacation at Tenuta Fattoria Vecchia

Happy New Year everyone!

Festive holidays are coming to an end, but during these vacations, we have not lost the habit of visiting villages in our beloved Maremma to discover secrets and curiosities to share with you.

Today we want to talk about Montorsaio, a historical village with a breathtaking view of the Maremma hills, just 35 minutes away from Tenuta Fattoria Vecchia.

In this suggestive scenery during the Christmas season (from Dec. 8th until Jan. 8th), hundreds of nativity scenes are set up among the alleys and stone houses of Montorsaio and can be visited for free! This setting is the result of the efforts of the citizens of Montorsaio who, through their commitment and imagination, set up nativity scenes that are faithful to tradition, but also more unusual, such as with their statues.

A tradition carried on for about 30 years that each year gathers visitors of all ages.

Not only nativity scenes! In fact, you can find some good food such as mulled wine and chestnut cake!

An experience to be had at least once.
