Punta Ala

This land was received by Eleonora of Toledo in donation around 1560 and after many invasions by sea and by barbarians she decided to guard her land and to build the tower "Torre Nuova" on the hill which is in front of the Island of Troia and the nearby rocks raising out of the water named "li Porcellini".  Then in 1577 Torre Hildago, a second tower, was built to the North-West on another hill right in front of Piombino.

In the 1700s Feaudalism with its taxes, dues, servitude and priviledges gave way to a better economy with betterment of the swampy areas, extension of agriculture and production of iron, only to name a few.

The pleasant climate, the promising agriculture now with cattle and horse raising, new roads and more natural resorses being utilized, Punta Ala was becoming liberated and free and more inviting in the 1900s. It also lent itself quite well to leisure time activity along the seaside and at the new port completed after 1973.
