About this port

Along with Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole is the other main town in the municipality of Monte Argentario in Tuscany’s Grosseto province.

The fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella that dominate the hillside above this pretty seaside resort with its perfect natural harbour, Marina Cala Galera, date back to the 16th century when the Spanish controlled the town.

Porto Ercole’s historic centre can be reached through the Porta of Sienese surmounted by a clock tower on which one can read the plate commemorating the great painter “Caravaggio” who died here in 1610.

Porto Ercole perks up in the summer when the long promenade is filled with well heeled tourists shopping and drinking espressos in cafes.
