Punta Ala (formerly Punta Troia) is a charming hamlet near the town of Castiglione della Pescaia, in the province of Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy. It is a famous seaside resort which lies on the northern slopes of promontory of the same name.
Previously known as Punta Troia, changed its name to Punta Ala (from aviation jargon) due to the great Italian aviator Italo Balbo, who had purchased some fortifications and villas in the area which later became his residences.
The modern tourist center developed during the course of the twentieth century, particularly in the'70s.
The town is famous for its sailing regattas which are held by the local "Punta Ala Yacht Club" and the well equipped tourist port.
The place is a tourist destination of elites in every season, thanks to its luxury residences, second homes and boats moored at the port.
While presenting itself as a modern, functional and exclusive beach resort, Punta Ala was placed on the border between the Principality of Piombino in the north and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany to the south.
The fear of pirate invasions forced the construction of some fortifications to protect the coast.
The Hidalgo Tower, overlooking the modern town, was built during the sixteenth century to defend the far end of the southern principality of Piombino .
Il Castello di Punta Ala (The Punta Ala castle), also was built in the sixteenth-century by the Medici on the headland to the south-east of the site for the control of the north coast of Castiglione della Pescaia.
The Appiani Tower was built by its name sake to further enhance the defense system of the principality.
