  • Just off the main area of town lies this ancient water source. There is an info board explaining the 100’s of years of history. Definitely worth taking the time to find  more »
  • Started at the end of the year 1000, enlarged and rebuilt in brick and travertine in the mid 1200 is the largest and most imposing source of Siena, but least known of the Fonte Gaia in Piazza del Campo. With large Gothic arches surmounted by battlements, from a frontal with jets leonini travertine and the coat of arms of Siena. Near the birthplace of Santa Caterina. The source is cited in Dante's Divine Comedy in the 30th canto of the Inferno when meet Master Adam, known forger fiorentino, in the tenth pit of the eighth circle. The source by Siena is better known as "the source that talks" because every half hour from the source come voices, sounds and songs.

  • Not necessary to see but cool if you are in the area. It's an ancient public bath.
  • Nice quite and beautiful. Clear water and beautiful fishes.
  • Again like most places in Italy, this place is beautiful! Just take a look around at pretty much anything. History is thick and wonderful!
