Porto Ercole Travel guide
Porto Ercole : Michelin's recommendations
This seaside resort's small historic quarter lies at the foot of the Rocca Spagnola (Spanish Fortress) to which it is linked by crenellated walls. It huddles around the Piazza Santa Barbara, which is lined with the arcades of the former Governor's Palace. From here there are fine views of the marina and the two old Spanish forts which bear witness to the Spanish domination of this territory, the Presidio state, in the 16C.
