Monteriggioni

In the territory of Monteriggioni there are numerous localities of historical-artistic importance and physical features extremely differentiated. But the nucleus of Monteriggioni is the small fortified village, on a hill with vineyards and olivegroves. Monteriggioni was built by the Senesi (inhabitants of Siena), in a period comprised between 1213 and 1219. The walls enclose a town where the Middle Ages are not ended yet: it has an elliptic shape and it wraps the top of a high hill, that dominates the plains and the surrounding hills. The village is small, because the walls didn't allow it to spread: they are only 560 meters long. We enter in the village passing through the Porta Franca or Romea (oriented towards Siena) or through the Porta di S.Giovanni (towards Florence). Entering through the Porta Franca, we arrive in Piazza Roma, the heart of the village, where there is the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, constructed in 1219. In the Territory, the hamlets of Abbadia Isola, Santa Colomba and Strove are worthy of visit.
