It is a splendid fortified town that appears on the summit of a hill built by the people of Siena during the Middle Ages to defend the ancient Republic against the attacks from Florence. It is undoubtedly the best conserved and most significant example of the “walled town” in the territory of Siena and of all Tuscany. Still now it is completely surrounded by strong walls with 14 quadrangular towers.
Located in the southern part of Siena, the Orcia Valley enjoys a splendid view of nature such as stretching hills covered with vegetation crisscrossed by rows of cypress trees linked to small towns of Medieval and Renaissance origin.
This harmony has brought the Val d’Orcia to be honourably recognized by Unesco World Heritage Site of Humanity in July 2004
Nestled in the hills of the Val d’Orcia, this splendid town is declared by UNESCO a world heritage site.
Its centre was completely redesigned by Pope Pius II in Renaissance times who planned to transform his birthplace into the first example of the “ideal city”.
You can smell and taste the “pecorino” everywhere in town. Pecorino is a well-known cheese made from sheep’s milk
