 July,6th /7th /8th and July 13th /14th /15th THE MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL in MONTERIGGIONI

 

The XXII edition of the Medieval Festival returns to animate the historical center of Monteriggioni, a beautiful village located few kilometers from Siena.
In the first two weekends in July (6th /7th /8th  and 13th /14th /15th ) inside the enchanting city wall with its massive towers, dozen of events will take place. The theme of this year will be “Heaven end Hell”.

In the squares, in streets and gardens of the village, good and evil will fight  setting shadows of demons, witches, alchemists against  the light of angels, jugglers, storytellers and other fantastic creatures.
The festival, like every year will give hospitality to characters that seem to come directly from the past, immersed in a medieval atmosphere recreated through the markets, minstrels, dances, pubs, taverns where you can taste the delights of the medieval time.
For your shopping there will be also an exchange office to convert your currency  into“grossi”(coined for the occasion).
Do not miss this wonderful journey back in time!

A few kilometers from Siena, on the prestigious Via Francigena, there are three significant places connected by a path and a shared history. In the day Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 24th you can discover these places through a guided tour through which to admire the beautiful fortress of Staggia with its Castle, the Towers and the walls still passable. You can visit the magnificent Abbey Island Abbey, founded in 1001 and owes its name to the environment, emerging as the edges of wetlands; the church seemed to rest on an island. The visit continues in the wonderful village of Monteriggioni, a magical place where time seems to stand still, enclosed within its walls and towers, a place that always attracts many tourists for its beauty, including Dante Alighieri. He saw  Monteriggioni  in full battle in one of his trips, and celebrated  the majesty in his most famous work, the Divine Comedy.
