In 1574, defensive walls began to be built, which are still well maintained today, and the area was drained, and road networks installed. Following the Lorraine takeover, Grosseto continued to flourish. Today, Grosseto is a beautiful city surrounded by a green plain, and by walking along its streets and observing its monuments, you can witness 12 centuries of history.
