The clock tower
Aug 2021 • Couples
The imposing tower is all that remains of the stately residence of the episcopal castle of Monteregio. Probably built in the twelfth century it became, with the emergence of town, the “Civic Tower “ and from 1443 it housed the first mechanical clock in the city.
Once the Sienese Fortress was built , the tower, after begin greatly shortened, was connected to the imposing defensive system by the Sienise Arch , a work of medieval engineering that still fascinates for its boldness.
From the top of the tower you can admire a breathtaking panorama of the city and the surrounding plains reaching the sea, where you can see, on a clear day, the islands of Elba, Montecristo and Corsica

Great little outing
Jul 2018 • Family
Climbed the tower with our three kids (3, 3 and 5 years), which went better than expected (they are used to stairs though). We came at 5pm, which probably was a good time as I suspect it can get crowded. Great views and very charming.

A must see if you are visiting Massa Maritima
Jul 2017 • Couples
We walked up to the old town and paid to get into the Torre del Candeliere. The view of the old walls and the surrounding countryside was amazing.

The stairs were a bit steep and tight for me (I'm 6'4") but I managed as did our 10 year old.

Very interesting to walk the walls that have stood for so long.

Thank you for your comments on Torre del Candeliere . With a bit of patience and few steep steps to climb, you reach the top of the ancient building and enjoy a splendid panorama.

Visited with 3 & 5 yr old boys ! They loved climbing high, pretending to be soldiers whilst we were in awe of the views from both levels ! Not to be missed !

Quite cheap to get up in the clock tower and having a small walk on the wall. Excellent view from the top over the area and city of Massa Marittima.

Massa Marittima is an amazing ancient town
Sep 2016 • Friends
Typical Italian ancient square in hilltop town in the Western part of Tuscany - lovely quiet place to mooch around. Especially good for couples on a relaxing break who enjoy sampling the history of the region.

What a wonderful surprise!
Jun 2016 • Couples
I reluctantly agreed to claim this tower (just a few euros to get in) and what a surprise!
It doesn't look very special from the outside compared to other towers in Tuscan villages and towns but the views are amazing and gives you access to part of the ramparts too.
Not to be missed if you are lucky enough to visit the beautiful town of Massa Maritima!

Worth the climb

Fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. It is a steep climb up the hill to the tower and the stairs inside is not for the infirm or children
