MONTERIGGIONI

small village in the heart of Tuscany

Monteriggioni is located in the center of Tuscany, at the southwestern end of the Chianti region, rises on the so-called hill of Monte Ala and overlooks the Via Cassia-Francigena. Part of the so-called Montagnola Senese presents a very varied territory; around the relief of Montemaggio there are some small plains such as Pian del Lago and Pian del Casone, and the Canneto, alternating with a series of small valleys formed by streams and streams that characterize the central and eastern part of the territory. Monteriggioni is one of the most famous walled villages of Italy, famous all over the world, surrounded by a majestic city wall 570 meters long with a thickness of 2 meters; it is interspersed with fifteen 15-meter towers (one inside the city walls) and two entrance doors: Porta Franca (towards Siena) and Porta San Giovanni (towards Florence). The fortress of Monteriggioni was originally surrounded by the "charcoal pits", a moat filled with coal, which during the assaults was burned to repel the enemies, it is thought that in the past, it was equipped with a drawbridge that had to allow the passage on a now disappeared, external moat. Monteriggioni was also placed under control of the ancient Via Francigena, frequented by European pilgrims who wanted to reach Rome.
