  • The ascent to the Tower, through increasingly steep stairs, pays back the visitor with a stunning landscape of the Val d'Orcia, contemplated in the wind here Santa Caterina defied and certainly not only image for beautiful photos. The tower itself is worth a visit, to see first hand what a medieval fortress, its paths, its defenses. Opposite is reviving even the fortress of the Aldobrandeschi, once known as little more than a shadow of herself, confirming that these places now so full of peace and beauty were once strategic battles and fortresses.

  • The rock dominates a Summit surrounding area. A nice structure from where you can enjoy a beautiful view around. If you do not want to pay the ticket you can enjoy the view from the base.

  • To get there follow the signs for Castiglione d'Orcia and then Rocca d'Orcia, parking lots are located, if not below the Hill of the fortress approach the village of Castiglione. To access this medieval bastion you have to buy a ticket for 3 euro, inside there is nothing basically you're paying for the magnificent view it offers, there are small trails around the rock, if you don't want to pay the ticket also from there you can enjoy the views. Beware of windy, if you climb the wind is the bargain hard. The village of Castiglione then you don't get much there is Piazza de Il Vecchietta, pretty, and the rocca Aldobrandesca, inaccessible at the time to work.
