Civitella paganico Dogana
The hamlet of Dogana lies along the Ombrone Valley, at an altitude of 206 metres. The rural hamlet has 16th-century origins, although there are traces of a settlement from the early Middle Ages. The name derives from the Dogana dei Paschi di Siena, who chose it as a place of access to the Grosseto Maremma: the shepherds, until 1776, had to pay the herbage to Monte dei Paschi.
