Monteriggioni

Het spectaculaire Monteriggioni, gelegen ten noorden van Siena, is een middeleeuws bolwerk, omringd door goed bewaard gebleven stenen muren en veertien torens. Net zoals Montepulciano is deze kleine stad op de top van een heuvel kenmerkend voor het Toscaanse landschap. De ommuurde buitenpost van Monteriggioni, vaak de 'Poort tot de Middeleeuwen' genoemd, is een typische middeleeuwse stad, bezaaid met vestingwerken. Het stadje op de heuvel werd in de dertiende eeuw door de Sienesen gebouwd om hun frontlinie te beschermen tegen hun eeuwige rivalen, de Florentijnen. Monteriggioni werd ook welvarend dankzij zijn strategische stop langs de pelgrimsroute Via Francigena. Als je praat in termen van grote en moderniteit, dan voelt Monteriggioni aan als een vergeten plaatsje. Pas wanneer het populaire middeleeuwse zomerfestival naar de stad komt, herinnert Monteriggioni zich hoe groot zijn belang was in het verleden, compleet met feesten, valkerij, steekspel en gevechtsspelen. Buiten de theatraliteit van de omgeving zijn er echter maar weinig belangrijke bezienswaardigheden, maar een bezoekje is alleen al voor de magische sfeer en monumentaliteit meer dan de moeite waard.
