Sorano is defined as the Matera of Tuscany, due to its particular urban characteristic of numerous rock buildings dug into the tuff, which recall the famous Sassi.

The Orsini Fortress of Sorano, (province of Grosseto), is an imposing fortified and residential complex located in the upper part of the locality of the same name, in a dominant position with respect to the entire town and the surrounding area.

Collegiate Church of San Niccolò: The church is mentioned for the first time in the Decime of 1276 as a suffragan of the parish church of San Nicola di Selvena. Around 1290 Sienese workers worked there on behalf of Countess Margherita di Monfort. In 1509 it became a collegiate church. Important expansions and renovations took place in the second half of the eighteenth century.

The Masso Leopoldino, also known as Rocca Vecchia, is a fortified structure located in the historic center of Sorano. Its location is in Piazza del Poggio, at the north-western end of the village and, together with the Walls of Sorano and the more imposing Orsini Fortress, it was an integral part of the defensive system of the town in the Tufo Area.

The Vie Cave, also called Cavoni, constitute an evocative road network from the Etruscan era that connects various settlements and necropolises in the area between Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano, developing mainly in trenches between steep rocky walls of tuff, sometimes over twenty meters: these characteristics also constituted an effective defense system against possible invaders.
