The written history of Sorano begins October 9 the year 862, when it was established by the Emperor Ludovico II County Aldobrandesca, then we find in the document of the year 1172, when the castle appeared as a property of the family Di Bartolomeo, always under the power of the Aldobrandeschi. The destiny of the country became those of this powerful family until 1312 when it became extinct, well after 450 years of feudal rule elapsed between battles and supremacy struggles.


Certain however, is the presence of the Etruscans as the numerous areas with chamber tombs, columbarium, the mysterious and fascinating ways quarries. The Roman phase, later than that Etruscan does not have a lot of tracks but the name “Soranus” seems to testify to the Roman world.
To see: the old town with its winding alleyways, the Fortezza Orsini, the Masso Leopoldino, San Rocco, the Vie Cave and castles in the surrounding area.
