  • With my husband during a trip to Monterriggioni we also visited this church. Lies at the heart of the medieval village and is extremely simple but nice. Recommended if you turn in the village.

  • It is a small church on the main square of monteriggioni. It is interesting that the tower and the façade are built in pedrs of different colors giving a different tone. The interior is dark and simple. During the noon we heard bells, wonderful.

  • This small church is right at the entrance of the city of Monteriggioni. I believe it is the only town, is very simple and small, but very quiet.

  • Very nice small fort in tuscany. Mentioned even by Dante Alighieri in his works. And yes it was in game Assassins Creed 2, but it is just completely different there :)
  • This romanesque-gothic church located in Piazza Roma.
  • Monteriggioni was once an outpost, existing to provide an early warning system for the defense of Siena from incursions by Florence. Kind of the equivalent of a frontier town in the American Old West. Within the ancient city's walls (which you can still climb atop) are several small streets and old stone facade buildings that have been there a long time. Among these is the Chiesa di Santa Maria, which dates from the 1200s. An afternoon stroll through these preserved and reconstructed relics is like being on a movie set for a film set in the Middle Ages. Only now they sell postcards, gelato and crafts rather than sever limbs. Highly recommend visiting here.
  • Awesome place to visit. There's a structure built on the walls so you can tour and enjoy the country side landscape views from the top
  • Nothing exceptional architectural perspective; If it wasn't located in the ancient circle nobody would consider.
