The small Medieval town in the interior of the Grosseto Maremma sits on the ridge of a hill planted in olive trees and vineyards.

Archological digs in the zone have revealed various Etruscan Neocropoleis proving that Magliano was an Etruscan settlement before becoming the Roman municipality, Heba.

Starting in the 9th century it was the uncontested dominion of the Aldobandeschi Counts.

Later it became the property of the Sienese Repubblic that fortified it with mighty city walls. They are still well preserved and enclose the oldest part of the center.

The two splendid towns of Montiano and Pereta both date from this same period. The town of Pereta is especially interesting for its small houses, tightly set against each other and often linked by supporting arches.

In addition to its historic-artistic interest, Magliano has become famous for the significant development of its production of D.O.C. wine Morellino di Scansano.
