It was pretty and mellow. Worth going to if you have the time. I would post pictures, but mine look like the ones already up.

Capella di Piazza / Siena
Aug 2018 • Family
Don't miss to visit Capella di Piazza, splendid view over Siena and landscap, after a lot of steps; also impressing view to the tower from a terrace of piazza del Campo.

We are just passing by Siena on the way to montepulciano. Nice place to visit and see. Unfortunately we don't have much time here.

Small Chapel that protrudes from the front of the Palazzo Pubblico and is an obstacle for the horses in Il Palio.
Oct 2018 • Couples
The Chapel was originally constructed in 1352 in thanks to the Virgin Mary for preventing the city from being further ravaged by the Black Plague that decimated the population in 1348.

Since that time it has undergone several renovations and reconstructions. The corner pillars were rebuilt in their current state in 1376 whilst the sculptures that stand in the niches were executed at the back end of the 14th century. The current roof was added in the second half of the 15th century.

The Chapel is located at the foot of the Torre del Mangia and protrudes out from the Palazzo Pubblico into Il Campo such that it is quite an obstacle for the jockey's and horses in the Palio to avoid. The horses race in a clockwise direction around Il Campo and take quite a wide line as they come around the sharp San Martino curve to head down the hill and actually disappear behind the Cappella before rounding it to enter the next curve.

There is an open air mass held in front of the Cappella on the morning of the Palio.

Nice Monument
Jul 2018 • Family
Nice monument with amazing artwork. It must have taken a long time to sculpt the pieces as there is a lot of detail.

A commemorative monument
Sep 2018 • Friends
At Piazza del Campo, a bit forwards from the Palazzo Pubblico, stands this marble chapel built here to commemorate the end of the plague in 1348. It was designed by Domenico d’Agostino in 1325 but was finished fifty years later by Giovanni di Cecco in a Gothic style. It is an impressive monument to the city and its turbulent history.

The Chapel of Piazza is the marble tabernacle that stands at the foot of the Torre del Mangia in Piazza del Campo. Great place to people watch under the fall Tuscany sun!

Small chapel
Jun 2018 • Couples
The Cappella di Piazza is the small white marble chapel at the foot of the tower in Piazza del Campo. The gates were locked when we visited so I am not sure if you can go inside for a visit.

The history goes on and on

This was my second visit 25 years apart and it still took my breath away, sneaking up on my when I least expected it.
You need at least two days here to see at least most of it but certainly not all. There are wonderful galleries, sites, views, shops, eateries and more that it's an amazing place.
I'd recommend good footwear, take some snacks so you're not buying too much food as it's expensive and always try to use some Italian as it goes along way. Extra charge for your camera or phone essential because you'll be snapping away all the time.

All paryt of the history and amazing city
Feb 2018 • Couples
Too much to see and understand without 2 full days, maybe 3 if you eat at all the wonderful places. Every Piazza offers something different. This ghas the views of towers and the tiny straate running off.
