Come visit the outstanding Castle Mago we will help make your holiday an unforgettable experience.
Castle Mago was built during the first decade of the 16th century and became the residence of Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, during the reclamation of the Maremma land.
In 1860 the Castle passed into the hands of the Merciai family, who transformed it into a "Historical House" open to all those who wish to enjoy an unforgettable holiday and to discover this beautiful land rich in history and art.
Leopold II was born on 3 October, 1797 in Florence and died in Rome on 29 January, 1870. He was the last Grand Duke of Tuscany, reigning from 1824 and ending with his abdication in 1859.
Castle Mago has been the residence of many Grand Dukes of Tuscany, but Leopold II lived here the longest. Documents dating back to 1529, demonstrate the existence of a former palace that was renovated to become the administrative headquarters of the Campiglia Marittima Railways.
Subsequent works carried out since 1900, have been supervised by the Italian Institute of Fine Arts. Today the castle represents one of the most important monuments of the Tuscan Maremma.
