  • The Cuna Grange is located near Monteroni d'arbia, along the Strada Regionale Cassia, which coincides with the ancient Via Francigena: it's one of the best preserved examples of medieval fortified farmhouse. In fact, a Grange was developed on the site where, in the medieval age, were a hospice or hospital for the reception of travellers: on this farm were deposited on corn and all other agricultural products which were used to keep the hospital that possessed her. To defend the products collected and the people who lived there from many raids that were at that time the farm was protected by fortifications, becoming a small village. The Cuna Grange stands where already in the 12th century there existed a Hospital intended to receive and to give assistance to pilgrims and merchants passing along the via Francigena: in the thirteenth century, become the property of the powerful Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala in Siena, the building was the subject of numerous works of enlargement. The Cradle consists of a large square block with walls, two corner towers with defensive apparatus to protrude on the southern front.

  • Ancient fortified farm from Siena, complex full of history and of suggestion unfortunately waiting for demanding restorations, before it's too late. Not open to the public.

  • We need a profound restoration but the magnificence of the medieval agricultural organization is still quite visible and understandable. Definitely worth a visit
