Montalcino is the homeland of Brunello, which is known as the “best and most celebrated Italian wine”. Montalcino is situated on a hill from where the beautiful and imposing twelfth century Fortress dominates the countryside below. The Palazzo Vescovile is a must see, it houses the museum of Montalcino with important paintings by artists from Siena of the thirteenth through fifteenth century such as Bartalo di Fredi, the Sodoma, Bartolomeo Neroni. The Palazzo Comunale, the Sant’Antimo Crucifix, dating back to mid 1100 and the churches of Sant’Egidio, San Francesco and Sant’Agostino should be seen as well. You won’t want to miss the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso.
Another beautiful sight in this region is the Abbey of Saint Antimo a former Benedictine monastery dating back to the times of Charlemagne in 781. Last but not least are the castles surrounding Montalcino, especially the Castello Banfi, known also as Poggio alle Mura, erected in the era of Longobards.
