Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: A short distance from Castiglione, the imposing fortress of the Rocca di Tentennano dominates the village of Rocca d'Orcia, rising up still today to guard over the Orcia valley below, where pilgrims, merchants, and travelers once made their way along the Via Francigena. Through the courtyard, visitors can enter the halls that once housed a garrison of soldiers and climb up to the top of the keep, from which they can enjoy a sweeping view of the countryside.

This is a great view of the entire Val d'Orcia. It helped me get my bearings. You can see for miles.

If you visit Bagno Vignoni or the surrounding area, you need to stop here and climb all the way to the top. A breath-taking view of the region that is well worth the 3euro.
