The inner plan of the town is very evocative with its Medieval alleys.
With its Etruscan necropolis, its Romanesque Cathedral of XI century and the church of Santa Maria of XII century, Sovana gave birth to a great Pope: Gregorio VII.
Inhabited since the Bronze Age, Sorano became an Etruscan stronghold. The name derives from an Etruscan divinity. After several ups and downs Sorano passes, in 1293, under the Orsini family and, in 1608 joins the Granducato di Toscana.
Numerous sulphureous bubbles give life to a small steaming crater. Water springs at a rhythm of about 1 cube metre per second, at a temperature of 37°-38° C. In proximity to the hot springs swimming pools have been digged. The mineral waters of Saturnia are useful for baths, inhalations and mud-baths. These waters find countless chances to be employed for medical - aesthetical treatments.
It is important to get to know the wonders of Mount Argentario and of Lake Bolsena in the surroundings.
