Montalcino - Sant'Antimo

In the town of wine, a marriage between art and culture

The ancient town of Montalcino, located in the province south of Siena, is enclosed by imposing walls inside which stands a medieval castle, the “Rocca”. Numerous celebrations and events take place here, like the famous Jazz & Wine Festival. This historic town overlooks a picturesque panorama characterized by hills, vineyards, and ancient olive trees that stretch from Mount Amiata across the Val d’Orcia. Montalcino is also known for the production of Brunello, a fine Controlled Denomination of Origin red wine.


Important monuments of interest here are the tower of the Palazzo dei Priori (Palace of the First Citizens), which stands on the main square of the town, the Bishop’s Palace, and the churches of Sant’Agostino, Sant’Egidio, and San Francesco. Instead, not far from the center stands the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, an ancient 12th-century Cluniac monastery and a jewel of Romanesque architecture.
