At the end of the last century returned to the light important architectural rests of this age: a pagan temple of the 225 A.C., built in commemoration of the victory (528 AC) of the Roman troops of Attilio Regolo against the Barbarian invaders (these vestiges are now preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Florence), the cemetery of the same battle, graves of the 200 AC, ruins of the thermal baths and, in the nearby valley of the river Osa, rests of a bridge with four arcades.
From the ancient times to the Middle Age Talamone crossed a period of almost total abandonment, unused ownership of the monks of the Abbadia S.Salvatore on the Mount Amiata. It knew new life when became fief of the Aldobrandeschi family and in the year 1303 of the Senese Republic.
The Senesi reactivated the port trying to make it their principal maritime base, and built the mighty castle, that still today dominates the town and great part of the surrounding zone. The fortification has the a square shape, strengthened by turrets on the three angles toward the sea from and on the other one from taller and thicker tower, with the main function of watch tower.
Talamone is situated in the province of Grosseto, the region of Tuscany located in the Maremma. The Maremma one of the least developed parts of central Italy, is a great place for the historian, nature-lover and sun-worshipper alike. This was the heartland of the Etruscans, the mysterious race who dominated central Italy before the birth of the Roman Empire and whose legacy can be explored throughout the area. The unspoilt hills and lowlands of the Maremma are home to an incredible variety of plant and animal life. The climate in Talamone is very mild; almond trees start blooming in February.
