More Info

Surrounded by the splendid stone walls, the medieval village of Monteriggioni rises at the southwestern end of the Chianti area. The beating heart of the village is the Castle, founded in the second decade of the thirteenth century by the Republic of Siena.

The medieval village of Monteriggioni is part of the so-called Montagnola Senese, in Tuscany.

Monteriggioni Castle was built by the Sienese, by order of the podestà Guelfo da Porcari, in a period between 1214 and 1219. The Porta Franca or Romea (oriented towards Siena) rises at the base of a tower while the one towards Florence, the door below, opens into the walls and is next to one of the towers of the fortified perimeter. Entering from Porta Franca or Romea, which was originally equipped with a heavy gate that was lowered in case of danger, you enter Piazza Roma, the heart of the village.

The Church of Santa Maria Assunta overlooks the square.

The well-established Medieval Festival of Monteriggioni is held every year in July.
