Monteroni today still expresses the vitality of this land, thanks to considerable craft production and the traditional market.


In the days of the ancient Sienese Republic,Monteroni D'Arbia Monteroni d’Arbia was a very important farm. Monteroni today still expresses the vitality of this land, thanks to considerable craft production and the traditional market. The 14th century fortified mill, whose great brick tower makes it easily visible, bears witness to the importance of this place in agricultural production.

On the road linking Siena and Monteroni another important point for the traveller seeking the genius loci of the Crete is the monumental farm of Cuna, an extraordinary fortified grancia hat was part of Santa Maria della Scala .

Taking the Cassia in the direction of Buonconvento you soon come to Lucignano d’Arbia , a fortified village where the Romanesque parish church of San Giovanni Battista frescoed in the 6th century by Arcangelo Salimbeni is well worth a visit. Setting out once more from the Cassia, the road leading to Radi follows another splendid stretch of the Crete and arrives at the magnificent Corsano parish church.
