We heard good stories about Radda, but honestly its just two streets that you are able to see in ten minutes. Would not recommend making a detour to see it. Castellina in Chianti has more to offer you.

Radda is a very nice little town. In the middle of the town this square is located with a church and the old town hall.

We attended an art show here and it was quite well organised. A good venue for these types of exhibits.

The Podesta were the so-called mayors of the day and had short times in office, were imported and selected rather than elected. Their coats of arms are displayed on the ancient town hall.
