Porto Ercole

Porto Ercole is a colourful locality, hamlet - as Porto Santo Stefano - of Monte Argentario. In July 1610 Michelangelo Merisi, the Caravaggio, died in this town; for this reason there is a twinship between Porto Ercole and Caravaggio. The town is encircled by Walls, the access is possible through a door with the Torre dell'Orologio; inside the walls we find constructions of historical importance, as the Church of Sant'Erasmo that, according to the legend, keeps the body of Caravaggio; and then the Palace of the Governors, on the small place Santa Barbara, that dominates the port, built in the 16th century, and finally the Corsini Garden, park of the villa Corsini, in which there are numerous botanical rarities. The city has many fortifications; in the surrounding territory we find Fortress Filippo; the Batteria di Santa Caterina, and finally Forte Stella, probably the most beautiful. The complex in fact has the structure of a star and from it walls we can enjoy a breathtaking panorama.
