PALIO HORSE RACE AND CONTRADAS IN SIENA28 September 2018
The Medieval town hall Palazzo Pubblico, the Torre del Mangia tower on Piazza del Campo, the pilgrim's Hospice, the Cathedral and the rests of the never finished new basilica on the Duomo square, tell us about the prestige and pride of this little Tuscan town. On the main square Campo, heart of the city, the horse race “Palio” takes place twice a year.

Three of them, still seat of the ancient bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena, form together one of the most beautiful squares in town.
