Located at the edge of the tree-filled, tufa-soil zone east of Vignano that slopes – with a series of villas, woods and olive groves – towards the more stark and less-populated area of the Crete Senesi, there is the Castle of Siena. With its four angular towers and battlements, its lovely, austere courtyard recalling that of the City Hall, and its characteristic stairway, the castle commands attention and arouses the curiosity of anyone passing through this area near Siena.
The castle originally belonged to the Cinughi, an aristocratic feudal family from Siena.
During the war of Siena (1555), the castle saw eventful happenings: tradition holds that Marignano lodged here, and during these unfortunate episodes the extravagant furnishings Giovanni Bichi had filled it with were lost.
Located in the heart of Tuscany, this city built on the hills still maintains its medieval appearance with its narrow streets and noble buildings rich in history. Of Etruscan origin, Siena was a Roman colony with the name of Siena Julia but its importance grew in the Middle Ages. After a long period of episcopal dominion, the city reached its peak as an autonomous Comune (1147), adopting a policy of expansionism towards the bordering territories. Confrontation with Florence was inevitable and the struggle lasted, with various vicissitudes, until 1555 when, after a long siege, Siena was conquered by the Florentines and lost its autonomy, becoming part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and sharing its fortunes until the unification of Italy.
