Stone alleyways lead the visitors to Monteriggioni on their exciting discovery of beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, between picturesque buildings, gardens and artisans shops from another era.
The travertine and “pietra serena” stone façade of the parish church, with its antique bell which was donated by the Republic of Siena in the 13th century, dominates the castle’s main square. During the Medieval Festival – an appointment not to be missed in the Tuscan summer calendar – the square plays host to re-enactments of ancient battles, reconstructions of medieval daily life and colourful jugglers and acrobats.
On the oval wall which forms the boundary for the Hotel’s garden, the walk along the ancient patrol path opens up amazing views over both the village and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
