Monteverdi Marittimo lies in the Upper Cornia Valley, on the southern slope of the Colline Metallifere. The position between the Cornia and the Cecina Valley makes Monteverdi Marittimo the natural gateway between the coast, the Bolgheri vineyards and the geothermal area.

San Walfredo and Sant’Andrea

La Chiesa di Sant’Andrea

The history of Monteverdi Marittimo is linked to that of the Benedictine abbey of San Pietro in Palazzuolo, founded in 754 and of great importance until the 13th century when it passed to the Vallombrosan monks. Only parts of the ancient structure still remain.

Monteverdi has no great historical or artistic attractions, if not the Church of Sant’Andrea with a single nave and baptismal font, and the Oratory of the Sacramento which preserves the relics of the patron San Walfredo.

The hamlet of Canneto

The nearby hamlet of Canneto is the main attraction of the area: of medieval origin, it boasts a wall and an elliptical shape with tower-houses, and the Romanesque parish church of San Lorenzo (11th-12th century), incorporated inside the old castle.

Not far from here, the Monterufoli Caselli Nature Reserve, the most important in the Cecina Valley thanks to its biodiversity and featuring over 60 km of trails for everyone, across the ruins of the monumental Abbey of San Pietro in Palazzuolo, Canneto until the dismantled Copper Mines.
