This medieval village is completely walled and was once a castle built between 1213 and 1219. The wall of the village remains intact and it is not difficult to imagine the lookouts from the castle for approaching armies. The Piazza Roma is the main plaza with a simple, but quite beautiful Romanesque church. Monteriggioni enjoys the distinction of having been named in Dante’s most famous work, The Divine Comedy. This is one of the best preserved walled villages in all of Tuscany. We try to include it on the itineraries for our workshops and tours because of its distinct beauty.
