The Monteriggioni Medieval Festival is an unmissable appointment Tuscan summer. In the magnificent scenery of the town wall of Monteriggioni for two weekends recreating the atmosphere and the setting of a medieval village with its military garrisons, artisans, nobles and commoners.
Located at the northern end of its municipal area, Monteriggioni occupies the top of a gentle hill from the slopes cultivated with vineyards and olive trees.
The castle was founded in the second decade of the thirteenth century by the Republic of Siena, with the main purpose of creating a defensive outpost against rival Florence. For centuries, the settlement took place in the middle of the function for which it was created, rejecting each time a myriad of sieges and attacks.
